a story of hope
22 May 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

The movie is composed by three short films that, in appearance, are connected by a theme: the immigrants lacking identity papers. This it is not completely true if we set us in the plot of the story that happens in Cuba, where a boy wants to seek his father, an American citizen. In reality Al Otro Lado is the story of three children that want to enjoy his absent parents but are impeded by their economic situation; three stories that themselves turn in just one story of hope. The performances have many ups and downs, mostly mediocre. The score turns out to be contrasting, with certain melodies that integrate you to the plot, and others too corny that separate you form the film. The serious problem of the film is the edition; it does not achieve that the three short films be seen like a thematic whole. Perhaps, juxtaposing more the three stories, the movie would be more tolerable.
