Storyline

Loss of traction. It happens to the best of us. We start taking for granted the bounty of our own lives, and soon we find ourselves coasting, blind to the joys all around us. So it is with Ramon, the hard-working immigrant mechanic at the heart of Help Wanted. With no options, he hires an inexperienced young stranger, Juan, whose own tragedy, and powerful way of coping with loss, teaches Ramon to look at his own life with new eyes.

An amazing piece of work, so emotionally strong!
24 January 2009 | by (Portland, OR, United States) – See all my reviews

I have known Teo for a long time, but this is the best work I have seen by him. Considering the limited production time and limited budget, he was able to capture real human emotion, from pain and sorrow to humor and joy in such a real and touching way, that it brought tears to my eyes!

Being able to make more with less is always a sign of brilliance in my mind! With his uniquely creative and purely honest approach to film-making, Teo Guardino is destined to go on to become one of America's great directors.

Watch out hollyweird, here comes trouble!
