INTERVIEW: Kuno Becker Plays It Rough

Mexican heartthrob and star of Goal I and Goal II, Kuno Becker returns to the big screen once again as an aspiring athlete in his new movie FROM MEXICO WITH LOVE opening October 8.       Watch Movie Trailer Kuno Becker stars in From Mexico With Love

Kuno tells CineMovie's Viviana Vigil, although he's played a soccer player in Goal I and II and a boxer in his latest film FROM MEXICO WITH LOVE, he's far from being athletic and hates to exercise.  Watch our interview with the up and coming Latino star.

 

FROM MEXICO WITH LOVE Movie Synopsis

Hector Villa (Kuno Becker), a scrappy migrant farm worker and part-time prizefighter, joins forces with an old-school trainer to take on a rich rancher’s boxer son in the ring. An adrenaline-pumping action drama that also stirs the heart, the film stars rising talent Kuno Becker (Goal!) as well as Steven Bauer (Traffic), Bruce McGill (Collateral) and Danay Garcia (“Prison Break”), and features thrilling fight scenes from stunt coordinator-turned-director Jimmy Nickerson (Rocky, Raging Bull, Fight Club).

Farm laborer Hector toils in the fields of a Texas ranch by day and moonlights as a boxer by night in whatever impromptu bouts he can line up. The winnings aren’t much, but they help support his ailing mother (Angélica Aragón), who works beside him in the fields. Meanwhile, the ranch’s tyrannical owner has fighting ambitions of his own: his son Robert (Alex Nesic), an all-American playboy, is a rising star on the local boxing scene.

Hector wants to face Robert in the ring—not least because Robert has taken an interest in the beautiful Maria (Garcia), a young worker recently smuggled across the border by the gruff but kindhearted Tito (Bauer). But the ranch owner doesn’t want his son fighting a Mexican “picker.” Hector’s shot at a better life appears doomed when he gets fired after brawling with ranch heavies who have slashed his mother’s pay. Beaten up, broke and jobless, he gets dumped back over the Mexican border for his troubles.

While there, Hector tracks down a veteran boxing trainer (McGill) who takes him under his wing and helps him prepare for the ultimate David-and-Goliath faceoff—a fight against Robert. After some tough negotiating by Tito, the ranch owner agrees to the match. The bout becomes a dramatic showdown between the racist ranchers and the masses of downtrodden farm workers, who see a victory in the ring as a chance to reclaim some of the dignity they’ve lost in the fields. Their hopes rest in the calloused hands of a young hero with something to prove.

Indie Filmmakers Advice From Jared Hess and Mike White

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (Jon Heder) and NACHO LIBRE (Jack Black) director Jared Hess is back with another offbeat comedy in GENTLEMEN BRONCOS.  Along with his wife Jerusha Hess, the writing and producing team return to the big screen three years after their foray into the world of Mexican wrestling, NACHO LIBRE, and five years after their high school slacker NAPOLEON DYNAMITE became a cult hit.

For GENTLEMEN BRONCOS, the Hesses teamed up once again with actor/writer/director Mike White (School of Rock, Orange County) who also produced their last film, NACHO LIBRE and stars as "Dusty" in the film.  

A salute to oddball artistes everywhere, GENTLEMEN BRONCOS weaves together a series of narratives revolving around aspiring writer Benjamin Purvis (The Forbidden Kingdom's Michael Angarano), a loveable underdog whose passion for writing science-fiction novels is turned upside down when his idol, the celebrated fantasy author Dr. Ronald Chevalier (Flight of the Conchords' Jermaine Clement), steals his story at a writers camp. 

In keeping with a writer's struggle theme of the movie, CineMovie's Fernando Esquivel sat down with the indie darlings to discuss why it's a good idea to write as a team and how to stay true to the craft of filmmaking.
