Rudo y Cursi – Trailer for new football comedy film

Posted by LiveFor on April 4, 2009

Beto and Tato are a pair of rivaling, dim-witted brothers who work on a dusty banana ranch and play soccer for their local team. Beto, a goalie whose hot temper on the field earns him the nickname of Rudo, dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, while Tato wants to be a famous singer. They both share the dream of building a big house for their mother, but all of their desires seem completely out of reach, that is, until a talent scout, Batuta, discovers their skill on the field and brings them to Mexico City.

Rudo y Cursi is both written and directed by first-time Mexican filmmaker Carlos Cuarón and stars Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna.
