«La Bamba» is a 1987 drama. The plane crash that killed rocker Buddy Holly also took the life of Ritchie Valens (Lou Diamond Phillips), a 17-year-old Mexican-American who rocketed to fame with the hit "La Bamba." The film paints a vivid portrait of Valens' modest upbringing, his warm relationship with his hard-working mother (Rosanna DeSoto) and his rise to stardom. Los Lobos performs Valens' music on the soundtrack. «La Bamba» directed by Luis Valdez. You can download «La Bamba» right here!

Wonderful Film16 May 2013

Nothing not to like about this film. The actors and their performances therein are simply wonderful. The music is great, and the (sad, sad) storyline of a talented kid who basically goes from rags to riches before losing his line the exact way he always thought he would is very compelling.
