Excellente Pelicula!!!!
6 October 2009 | by (Honduras) – See all my reviews

Estoy Feliz por este gran avance de Cine en Honduras!!! I loved the film!!! It was such a beautiful representation of Honduras!!

Amor y Frijoles is a must watch for all of you who want to see beautiful honduran locations and great talent!!! Story was very original and I hope it motivates filmmakers in Honduras and the region to come up with similar stories that are based on our daily realities. All together it was a fun movie, a bit short but worth it. The movie was also released at the right time... Honduras needed it!!!

Without doubt Polache's music is amazing!! I think he is one the best musicians in Honduras. Hope his next album rocks!!

Muah!! God bless and thanks for doing this in my country!!! AMOR Y FRIJOLES ES EL MEJOR!!!!
