De tripas, corazón 1996
16min | Comedy, Short
The coming-of-age story of young milkboy Martín (García Bernal). While his friends Jesús (Altomaro) and Roberto (Mora) are cocky and apparently they have a lot of experience in sex, young Martín is shy, quiet and virgin. Everything changes when the young cocky boys want to prove they’re men and go to a brothel without Martín.
DE TRIPAS CORAZON is one of the best short films that have been produced in the past 10 years in Mexico. It explains all you need to know about growing up in a small town, the step from childhood to adolescence, what you need to do to prove you are a real man! Gael Garcia is discovered as a young and bright talent, maybe one of the best actors in Mexico, a star that is going to shine. It is a tender love story!
