A Truly Haunting and Moving Film, 7 March 2011
Author: john-khoa-tran

Entre Nos shows a haunting and eye-opening depiction of living as a poor immigrant in America. The film is shown from the perspective of Mariana, the mother of two children. She fights through poverty, moral struggles, and heartache. For example, her husband leaves her and the kids at New York to fend for themselves while he starts a new life in Miami. This event triggers the future events of the film.

As the film progresses, the viewer sees the family slip deeper and deeper into poverty. The family's clothes become mangled and dirty because the family is homeless for some parts of film. The pain that is seen from Mariana becomes difficult to watch as the movie keeps going. The viewer may start feeling discomfort and sadness from watching the family sacrifice their lifestyle and safeties they had. The film further shows the struggles that immigrants have in the US in adjusting to culture and finding opportunities to work. Mariana spends weeks trying to find a job and developing skills necessary needed to work. Her lack of work experience and the father leaving show a fight to survive and succeed similar to The Pursuit of Happiness.

The acting by the children in the movie is fantastic. While many child actors may come off as cheesy and playful, the performances by Sebastian Villada and Laura Montana come across as sincere and realistic. They are forced to act as children who must grow up and become responsible which they do marvelously.

Overall, this movie is superbly well done. Paola Mendoza does a great job depicting her mother's story to provide for her children. Anyone hoping to see a different perspective of poverty on a misunderstood minority group must see this film. Entre Nos will inspire and haunt you at the same time.
