I know that this kind of tops are not new, however, all the time there are premieres, so I thought about updating to keep up and show what kind of films are most loved by the Mexican audience. But, I tell you something: you will not like it very much.
10. Kilometre 31 (2007) is a Mexican film directed by Rigoberto Castañeda. In my opinion, it is a rare thing in the national cinema, as it is plagued by narcos, wrestlers, mirreyes (Mexican slang for high class young men) and ordinary people, but horror and mystery? If you do not agree with me, what other titles in the genre can you list?
9. It’s Not You, It’s Me (2010) is a remake of the Argentinean film No sos vos, soy yo (2004), directed by Alejandro Springall (Santitos (1998) and Dying is in Hebrew (2007), and starring by Eugenio Derbez. This romantic comedy grossed slightly less than 126 million pesos. Not bad, right?
8. Rudo y Cursi (2008) is a pretty funny movie, do not you think? Unlike the other nine, it has the participation of Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro González Inarritu and Guillermo del Toro through their production company Cha Cha Cha Films. Ah, yes! Almost forgot: Rudo y Cursi was written and directed by Carlos Cuarón -whose brotherseems obvious, right? -.
7. In seventh place, we have the biopic of Mario Fortino Alfonso Moreno Reyes, better known as Cantinflas, directed by Sebastian del Amo and starring by Spanish Oscar Jaenada. It was chosen to represent Mexico in the 2015 Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Film, however, did not classify between 9 pre-candidates.
6. After reaching the sixth place, the only thing I can ask is: truth? Yes, the animated comedy Una película de huevos (2006) directed by Rodolfo and Gabriel Riva Palacio Alatriste was more successful than Sex, Shame & Tears (1999), Y tu mamá también (2001) and Amores Perros (2000).
5. Just as Sex, Shame & Tears, The Crime of Father Amaro (2002) was a controversial film and criticized by religious and conservative sectors of Mexico. The film adaptation of the novel by Portuguese writer Eça de Queiroz was directed by Carlos Carrera, and raised, according to Forbes, about 162 million pesos.
4. Marry Whom It May (2014) is a film directed by Marco Polo Constanse, and written and starring by Martha Higareda. The story is deep and fun Wait! Why lie? Nothing to write about this movie-.
3. From the director of Herod’s Law (1999) and Hell (2010), reached the third place of the highest grossing of all time Mexican films: The perfect dictatorship (2014). Produced, directed and co-written by Luis Estrada, the film is a comedy and political satire on how the media can legitimize a government.
2. In our second place is a production quite light: The Noble Family (2013). The film, directed by Garu Alazraki and written by Adrán Zurita and Patrick Zaiz, according to Forbes raised, just over 322 million pesos; this is almost twice earned by The Crime of Father Amaro, and guess what? Was seen by 6.7 million Mexicans.
1. When one assumed that The Noble Family was the best-selling Mexican film appeared (I do not know of where), Instructions Not Included (2013), film produced, directed and starring by Eugenio Derbez. Thanks to this, It’s Not You, It’s Me and Under the Same Moon (2007), the graduate of the Centro de Educación Artística de Televisa again stands as the highest grossing Mexican film star in all history?
