Excellent Film
27 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Italian Neo-Realism coming out of Queens! Excellent film. See it.

A classic case of: No Production Budget = Excellent Film.

It is a pretty basic story line about and friendship and loyalty. The acting was great and the minimalist approach worked well in this case.

A desperate-for-work, forth-generation, Italian American, living in Queens, befriends a Mexican day laborer(jornalero).

The film portrays the difficulties of everyday life for illegal workers in this country. I wish this film had more exposure and wider distribution. It seems like it was filmed on a cheap digital cam-corder, but this does not detract from the film, and might actually add something to its gritty realism. It basically could have been shot on home video.
