so real
21 November 2004 | by (Copan Ruinas, Honduras) – See all my reviews

i've seen this movie about 6 times now. and with me a growing number of people in honduras. this country lives on the American dream, so this is a eye opener for them. it shows the real live illegals have. the rough and tough conditions in which they live and work, the in hospitality of the people around them. the introduction of the movie is simply superb and already lays an underground for the rest of the film. shot on 16 mm black and white, the movie has an immense draw to it. and it doesn't matter that the acting is rough on the edges, it just ads. it has made some honduras think things over, but they probably still will go. fits in with La Ciudad and El Norte.
