According to The Washington Post, the movie “Roma” is Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón’s portrait of his own youth in 1970s Mexico City, that manages to be intimate and epic, minutely observed and monumental, tender and exacting all at the same time.
Focusing on the nanny who cared for him and his family during his parents’ divorce, this exquisitely filmed chronicle — photographed in silvery black and white — feels less like storytelling than poetry, shot through with shrewd social observation that never swamps the film’s deep emotional core.
Roma was chosen by Time magazine and the New York Film Critics Circle as its best film of 2018, as well as by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten best films of 2018. It earned a nomination for Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and has been selected as the Mexican entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
And on Thursday December 6th, the cinema theaters of the Siglo XXI Convention Center, in Mérida premiered the film Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma”, and those who have seen the picture, have come out satisfied with the compelling story.
According to the organizers of the event, the first feature of the popular film was a success and it is hoped that this will continue.
All Mérida residents who wish to enjoy this film at affordable prices, just have to go to the Siglo XXI Convention Center and watch the film in one of the different programmed feature presentations.
