Andres reaches the Mexican border to cross into the United Sates. There between each attempt, he discovers that Tijuana is a troubled city. As he waits there, Andres is not only confronted with his feelings and what he left behind, but also with those he meets. Written by
I recently saw this at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival. Andrés (Harold Torres) leaves his family in Oaxaca, Mexico to arrange to have a Coyote, or border smuggler, get him across the border into the United States. Things don't work out as planned and he ends up alone in the desert outside of Tijuana. While waiting for a chance to get across he is offered work at a small grocery store by Ela (Alicia Laguna). Ela's friend Asenio (Luis Cárdenas), is jealous of Andrés' presence and wants him gone and Ela's friend Cata who works and lives at the store dislikes Andrés and sees in him her long-lost husband. This is the debut full-length feature from director Rigoberto Pérezcano who co-wrote the screenplay with Edgar San Juan. A great cast and excellent photography by veteran cinematographer Alejandro Cantú and great sound from the film's sound department. This is a small film where not a lot happens but then again, a lot does happen here. For what it is, I would recommend it and give it a 7.0 out of 10 and we will likely see more from writer/director Pérezcano in the future.
