Jaime García is a loudmouth. He is also a troublemaker. He likes to be the centre of attention. That’s why he is a star, perhaps a brown dwarf, in the mariachi constellation. In his songs, soaked in high-grade spirits, he reviews his troubled life of Don Juan with a sombrero. He performs at the back roads of Mexico’s musical circuit. But he lives these gigs as if they were at Madison Square Garden. Because everything around the Charro of Toluquilla is true, even if it is a lie. His bravado, his jokes, his bohemian life. José Villalobos realized he was a perfect character for a documentary. But also for a comedy, of course: the equestrian poses in the sunset, the visit to the physiotherapist or the episode with the police helicopters are supreme comedy skits.
