This is a great film. It's true to life about what people have to do just to get into America to build a life for themselves and their family. The acting, directing, writing are all great. Cinamatically it's great too. I watched it more than once and will watch it again. I highly recommend this film. Granted it does not have the most happy ending. That's because it is a realistic film not a fantasy film. Gustavo Sanchez Parra (Amores Perros)does a very believable job in leading this cast of actors who are probably unknown to most American movie-goers. His work in this film made me very interested in seeking out and watching his other films. This is a great film to show preteens and teenagers for them to see what some people have to go through to attain the basic things many of us take for granted here in America. It really got me interested in studying the subject more.
