Judging from the other negative comments left here, I guess you really have to have a little "latin" in your heart, to really appreciate, and understand, and love this gem of a movie...
Not since "El Norte", have I enjoyed such a film about human trail, and self-realization.
This is the first film I've ever seen that truly conveys a sense of a person's "conviction" in her faith, and the lengths she is willing to go, to find her daughter----so tragically lost, that the obvious seems to always elude her, as she proceeds in her mission amidst confusion and temptation, and dispair.
As should be in real life, this innocent and naive woman prevails in the end, when her pain is replaced, with closure, and joy.
I do not think westerners (Hollywood) can make such heart-felt and endearing movies like this. I am a Californian, U.S. born, and have seen about every Hollywood movie ever made, but the 2 BEST movies I have ever seen, just happen to be -----latin productions!
