Solid First Part of the Trilogy "Rubirosa".
8 October 2018 | by yorkelvisSee all my reviews

The Dominican film industry has become the most active in the region. The producers, directors and actors of the continent are aware of this and meet with different productions on the island, as is the case of the main actor and producer of this release, Manolo Cardona (Colombian) and its directors Hugo Rodríguez (Argentine) and Carlos Moreno (Colombian). These join a group of Dominican actors, who are already veterans at the national level to create a work well entertained, well acclimated, well acted, well directed and with a good script. Which leads us to reflect on the word good, which in other instances would lead us to the conclusion that it is a mediocre movie, however, in this case I say it in the best possible sense.

Rubirosa: El Tiguere tells an interesting story, with lots of enthusiasm and a sense of humor. I'm not going to dedicate myself to making a synopsis or specifying the good and the bad of it (I could do that after seeing the whole trilogy), but to simply recommend it as a semi-biographical film set in the Trujillo era. I approve it bluntly.
