Caught Me!!
6 March 2014 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

First impression was another cheap Mexican production but after a few minutes I thought, "This can't be right, this is no cheap afternoon soap-drama.", quickly checking online identified it as Argentinian. Argentina is one of a few countries in the world whose studios turn out consistently well scripted, directed and acted films. France, a couple of Scandinavian & Asian sources.

All that aside our Elvis impersonator, besides doing a remarkable singing Elvis, deserves kudos for his captivating acting. The directing and cinematography are of high quality and as for the script - it caught me totally by surprise. There is much more to this story than just being about another impersonator. Warning: Don't read any summaries with the ending discussed before watching the film for yourself.
