Carlos Cuaron’s Rudo Y Cursi Trailer Starring Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal

An English-subtitled trailer for Carlos Cuaron’s new film Rudo Y Cursi has arrived online courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. Carlos is, of course, the brother of director Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men, Y tu mamá también), and co-wrote the screenplay for Y tu mamá también. He has also directed a number of short films before, but as far as I know this is his feature-length debut.

Rudo Y Cursi (Tough and Corny) is a dark comedy about two brothers (Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal) who move to Mexico City to become professional soccer players. Their sibling rivalry is constantly at odds with their career aspirations, and the situation is complicated by the fact that Tato (Cursi) actually dreams of becoming a singer, and Beto (Rudo) has a gambling problem. I really wanted to catch this movie at Sundance a few months back, but unfortunately we couldn’t fit it into our schedule. Either way it looks pretty funny, and I’m interested to see what Carlos Cuaron can do on his own. The focus on soccer may limit its appeal here in North America, but fortunately it will be getting a limited theatrical release in on May 8th. Check out the trailer embedded below, or watch it in HD over at Apple.com.

    I hate soccer. And sports movies in general… luckilly this one doesn’t really focus on that, and it’s more about their relationship.

    The movie came out here in Mexico a while ago, and it’s hilarious! Though I think a lot of the humor will get lost in translation…
