    Following a hardworking, goodhearted man as life beats the hell out of him, this documentary is moving almost to the point of exploitation.

    Pain, poetry and perseverance form the backbone of Mark Becker's compassionate, well-observed documentary.

    If this terrific documentary doesn't adjust your idea of what it means to have a hard life and a good attitude, you haven’t been paying attention.
  4. The value of Romantico is that it lets us experience vicariously what Carmelo and others like him go through.
  5. A modest documentary, small in scope and ambition, but it achieves one of the higher callings of art in that it forces viewers to look at a something in a newer, deeper and more humane way.

    Engrossing pic is impressively shot, edited and scored.

    There's nothing extraordinary about mariachi singer Carmelo Muñiz Sánchez, and nothing extraordinary about Mark Becker's documentary profile Romántico.
