A real quirky independent comedy
napierslogs from Ontario, Canada
26 June 2010
"The Deported" is an independent comedy starring Nicholas Turturro as
Gianni DiCarlo an Italian American actor struggling to find work. When
he offends two crooked INS agents, he finds himself in a small town in
Mexico run by kids, and he needs their help to get him back to America.
This is a straight forward comedy with Gianni as the typical Brooklyn
Italian American actor (including the accent). The story has Gianni
getting himself involved with weirder and weirder characters and
situations in the small Mexican town. These characters and scenarios
are a bit ridiculous but also funny.
For me the highlight of the film was 'the kid' named Juan, who played
the perfect straight-man to Gianni's bewilderment. He is sweet and
funny and brings the film back down to Earth.
"The Deported" appears to have a fairly high production level so it
doesn't have the look and feel of other low-budget independent films
and that should help give it a wider audience. It does get a bit absurd
at times, but it's cute and funny. Give it a try!
