Gael García Bernal as Roberto Durán
I think a great deal of Gael García Bernal's acting ability, but I can't say I ever saw him and thought, My, he would really make Manos de Piedra come to life. Even without having seen La Mala Educación, in which he spends much of the movie dressed as a woman, I don't think I'd say that García comes across as a raging bull of an actor. Then again, I can't say I ever expected him to pull off a norteña version of a Cheap Trick song in the guise of a star goalie itching to remake himself as a singer, so maybe I'll be surprised.
