good example of independent world cinema, 5 November 2009
Author: Elena Gomez from Los Angeles

this is a great example of independent world cinema, made with minimum resources, a light story, a great location, a beautiful country and new actors and excellent quality. amor y frijoles is a good effort to bring to the screen a story from honduras. the story could have been longer in my opinion. did not like the girl who played the role of "karen", she was not to good. "nicole" was great, really gave her role life. i am told she has never acted before... she is a good talent to watch out for.

all in all i give it a 8 out of 10 for the final product. hope to see more films like this soon from honduras. it is a great country with amazing locations.
