Rabbit On The Moon
Reviewed by: Angus Wolfe MurrayRead Angus Wolfe Murray's film review of Rabbit On The Moon
The extras are light, but not without interest. The Making Of featurette is more of an interview session with the director, producer and some of the actors, rather than a traditional Behind The Scenes mini doc. Jorge Ramirez Suarez says that he spoke with “a lot of politicians, a lot of journalists and writers in both countries,” meaning Mexico and England.
He calls Rabbit On The Moon “a fiction story with a very realistic setting.” That’s scary, because one of the problems when watching the film is a feeling that the corruption and violence amongst politicians and police is exaggerated. Suarez implies otherwise.
This puts a different slant on things and one can only respect Suarez’s courage in making the film. He spent 26 days shooting in Mexico and 17 in England. Not surprisingly, he received neither encouragement, nor assistance from the Mexican authorities.Reviewed on: 12 Feb 2007
