Product description

Product description

Ricardo Valenzuela è un giovane di origine messicana che fa il bracciante a S. Fernando Valley in California e, quando il tempo libero dalla scuola glielo consente, coltiva - contrastato dalla famiglia - una sua forte passione per la musica. Quasi a sorpresa, l'incisione di tre brani rock da lui composti e cantati, e balzati subito al vertice delle classifiche, gli fa raggiungere notorietà e successo sotto lo pseudonimo di Ritchie Valens, nonostante i contrasti all'interno della famiglia e il difficile rapporto col fratellastro Bob. Ma improvvisamente perde la vita in un incidente aereo il 3 febbraio del 1959 a solo 17 anni.

From Amazon.co.uk

Lou Diamond Phillips leaves a haunting impression in La Bambaas the late 1950s pop idol Ritchie Valens, who made the Latino influence in rock & roll conspicuous through his hit songs. Filmmaker Luis Valdez (Zoot Suit) creates a nimble, exciting, and sympathetic portrait of the boy driven to rise above obstacles of race and family legacy, and Esai Morales is equally fine as Ritchie's envious, searching brother. Great support from Elizabeth Pena and Danielle von Zerneck as Valens's sister and mother, respectively, and Joe Pantoliano is solid as the singer's straight-talking manager. Valdez brightens up the third act with a rock & roll show featuring, among others, Brian Setzer as Eddie Cochrane. Marshall Crenshaw turns up as Buddy Holly getting on that plane with Valens, and Los Lobos (who actually performs Valens's music on the soundtrack) has a nifty cameo as a Tijuana band that gives Valens a piece of crucial inspiration. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
