The last unpublished appearance of Héctor Suárez on the large screen are going to be through a documentary about his friend, the footballer Hugo Sánchez.
In the eighties, the actor who died yesterday at the age of 81, worked in Spain where Sánchez wore the shirt of the 2 teams within the Iberian capital, Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid.
Suárez and Sánchez lived together tons and a part of those memories are going to be seen within the documentary “Hugo Sánchez”, directed by Francisco Javier Padilla (Suave Patria) and which can be distributed by Cinépolis on a date to be defined.
“Héctor was a lover of Hugo, who received visits from friends; he would see him at the Santiago Bernabeu (the stadium) and that they had a really beautiful relationship, it’s a sworn statement that is a bridge for everything that’s getting to be seen,” says Padilla. .
The director and Suárez have had a friendship since 2000, when the previous was a movie student at the Russian Institute in Coyoacán and therefore the latter helped him during a short film.
The chemistry permeated between the 2 and every exercise that had to be done, Suárez collaborated albeit it had been just for a walking scene.
And there was a promise that when Padilla made his film, Suárez was in it, which happened within the comedy “Suave Patria”.
“The role was very planned, but if he wanted to improvise he had the green light, but he knew the limit; he was strict with the dialogues, you could not change one unless he improvised; I only listened like Héctor Jiménez (” Nacho libre “) they agreed and everything worked, sometimes they were repeated because some were laughing “, he tells during a good mood.
Padilla indicates that in January he asked the actor from “Lagunilla mi barrio” and “El milusos” the likelihood of creating a documentary about his career, trying to seek out support on the 2 television stations that he had worked.
Héctor was then focused on a book that he apparently finished and also, if the audio-visual materialized, he wanted to speak about all aspects of his life, including the phase of alcoholism that he went through.
“I think it’s necessary to try to to it, but he would need to seriously discuss it together with his family,” he says.
