A must see heart-warming movie!, 24 August 2007
Author: gpschweitzer from United States

I was recently invited to a sneak preview of "From Mexico With Love", produced by Cinamour Entertainment, directed by Jimmy Nickerson. I was pleasantly surprised by a touching story of Latin immigrants and their struggle to survive. I felt Hector, portrayed by Kuno Becker, played a convincing role of a young man determined to make a difference for his people. The magic of Bruce McGill is evident in his performance of Billy, the trainer. There were some humorous scenes, where his style came through and showcased some of his musical ability. The cinematography was awesome, and the special effects brought it all together.

A must see heart-warming movie!
