Storyline

On her 26th birthday, Elena suffers an anomaly: she loses her ability to speak Spanish. It happens during a late-night argument with her mother, the janitor at a Boston museum, over several family issues: Elena's missing father (gone since she was a young child) and her feeling caught between two men, a Latin artist named Tito, who has no Green Card, and her Irish-American boss, Brian. What explains the loss of her native tongue? Does it matter within the larger challenges of finding her father, choosing between men, and reconciling with her mother? Some answers may come at the Blue Diner, where Papo, the Cuban proprietor, serves up brains and a special pepper. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Meaningful Film
13 October 2001 | by (Medford, MA) – See all my reviews

A terrific, funny, and poignant film lead by wonderful performances from William Marquez and Miriam Colon. Great cinematography, music, and script. I hope that this movie makes it to commercial distribution. The film makers paid great attention in portraying the characters, they seem struggle to speak and live, unlike many characters in many Hollywood films. Finally, a film with no stereotypes, just about people confronting extraordinary events in every day life. Not just a "Latino film" but an American film with so much power.
