An excellent, overlooked film
9 December 2003 | by (Chapel Hill, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

I was very impressed by BACK AND FORTH (the US title), and greatly disappointed to see this ignored in the US, as it's among the finest recent Mexican films I've seen - almost as great of a film as Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN or JAPON, but completely unlike either. Blending heightened realism (incorporating sociological and personal-identity concerns that recalled Steinbeck), suspense and drama in excellent fashion, I would highly recommend checking this out - the performances in this modest but well-crafted tale of identity and dislocation are top-notch, and the cinematography is breathtaking, which only hammers home the tragedy of the story.
