Synopsis and review of Padrazos

At the beginning of the documentary, a question is asked of all viewers: what does it mean to be a good father? And the answer is what is given throughout the more than 80 minutes that this documentary lasts. It is about showing the vision of fatherhood in the 21st century by removing all the stereotypes that can be generated. And despite the fact that we are used to actors always playing a role in this type of documentary, in Padrazos they tell their own experience without having a script in front of them to give life to another totally different person.

Currently there are many stereotypes in the field of fatherhood, such as that a man cannot raise a child like a woman, or that two homosexual parents will not be able to grant him the same education as a traditional couple. We all have in mind that parents are only there to be able to teach them to play soccer or give orders without any emotional part. Padrazos shows different parents, both known and anonymous, to show the intimacy of their home. The famous actors who have participated are Will Smith, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Neil Patrick Harris.

There are many anecdotes that are told in this documentary that make us reflect on paternity. For example, a Japanese father tells how having a son gave his life much more meaning after receiving the news that he was going to be unable to work for life. The fact that a new member in the family is keeping this person busy has possibly made him want to live that much more. In addition to this anonymous story, there are many others, such as the experience of Nil Patrick Harrys, a homosexual actor who adopted a child and is giving him a very good education. Currently there are many problems for this group to adopt due to the stereotypes that have been imposed and we have previously commented, but here it is about ending them at all costs.

Padrazos Apple

Without a doubt, this documentary makes a lot of sense since very little has been said on television about the role of parents in the family. According to Will Smith, there is no kind of manual to be able to take care of a child and there is no cultural recognition for men who have had a child. It is possible that many families feel identified at this time when watching Padrazos and that is why it is important to see it all together in the room since it has a fairly good rhythm.

It is interesting to see how the director of this documentary has also taken her own family to tell the personal experience. Everything takes place within a comical environment full of jokes and catchphrases but with many nuances of drama as a result of the social repercussion that we have been commenting on previously.

And you, what do you think of Padrazos?
