..it's a better film than most are giving credit for
29 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most films are make believe, not documentaries.. so when you view them, you are doing it with a great leap of imagination and a blind eye at times. Americano is an interesting film, well scripted and acted. At forty-six Selma Hayek.. bit.ly/18K8d2A ..is still undoubtedly an exceptionally beautiful woman, and here once again she performs well in what is a fairly basic role... one that might easily have not been taken as serious by many actors of her stature. She's well know, but in truth is under-appreciated for just how good and dedicated an actor she really is. She's a very smart and interesting woman, continuing to please audiences with her ever expanding body of work.
