I must differ with the previous comment."DE IDA Y VUELTA" is not only about the exploitation of migrant workers by landlords, or the choices they made because of the poverty, it goes beyond that. This is the story of a man that seeks for his future in another country as an illegal worker. He returns to find things worse in his little village. The previous landlord's son is now in charge and doing everything to get hold of land. It's like a Mexican version of the plot of Chinatown (without the detective). The last family harassed by the landlord is the family of his former girlfriend and his cousin, one that promised to wait for him, the other who promised to never approach her. This man, incredibly portraited by Taracena, a very talented actor, has to decide where are his loyalties. Specially when everything, in the best film film noir fashion, goes wrong. There are many surprises in the story, Aguirre's direction is full of dark humor, despair and a deep knowledge of human's lack of humanity.
