an intriguing look at the experience of the new immigrant groups whose migratory story has yet to be told.
5 October 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

While some areas of the movie may seem prefabricated to them throughout the movie is worth watching the film. as for myself, the most intriguing parts were the following: when Balbuena speaks to his Cuban landlord and she states that she doesn't understand why the immigrants continue to come. she says that the good thing that was the U.S., the opportunity was gone that they shouldn't come anymore.

by presenting this viewpoint to the audience the movie humanizes the idea of immigration because using this statement as a frame for the film we can be enlightened as to the reason because through Balbuena's experience we see where these immigrant groups are coming from and why. this in the end serves to humanize the group. their not economical immigrants they are human beings looking for a better way or simply just searching for hope. a place that to them could only be seen as the new El Dorado. however, unfortunately for them their quest fails as did the various quests for El Dorado in the past.

finally, we should look at their journey not with cold, capitalist eyes but as human beings and try to understand their struggle.
