“The title of Güeros, a Mexican New Wave homage shot in black and white, references blond or light-skinned Mexicans. Two brothers, Tomás and Sombra (one lighter in complexion than the other) and their pal Santos, knock around Mexico City, dropping in and out of the student protest movement that’s closed down the university, and visiting one of its leaders, Ana, a gamine beauty reminiscent of Jeanne Moreau in Jules and Jim or Anna Karina in any number of Godard movies from the ‘60s.
Whether quoting Rilke or Derrida or pursuing a mysterious musician “who made Bob Dylan cry,” this foursome’s droll, absurd adventures don’t revisit the ‘60s so much as reinvent them for a new generation of Latino hipsters. Unsurprisingly, actor Gael Garcia Bernal was associate producer of the film.” – Film Forum
A Kino Lorber release
“This bouncy and effervescent film often has the kind of timeless charms
that can also be found in the early New Wave films.”
—Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
“A good story – full of life and related with intelligence
and a sense of humor.”
—Elise Nakhnikian, Slant
