Very well done movie!
8 June 2012 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Aside from a semi-typical movie about how Americans are prone to act like idiots when they are anywhere outside their normal habitat, This movie was Directed, shot and acted very very well! A very good story about the strife and hardships that illegal immigrants can suffer at the risk of trying to make a better life for themselves by crossing the US-Mexican border. The story intermingles the lives of several people who are put in compromising situations in order to meet their own needs. Amazing performances by Luis Bordonada J. Salome Martinez. My only frown is that the characters who play Americans, aside from Art Lefleur are not always convincing in their acting, and their motivations are basically just to be jerks, which throws out another motivation question: why do these people want to come to a country filled with these idiots? The story could have been just as good if not better if they showed the Americans being represented as respectable people bringing a ray of light to a seemingly ravaged and lawless land.
