Storyline

Sixty year old Max is having something of a middle-age crisis. His marriage seems to go nowhere as the passion, tenderness and happiness vanished when their daughter moved out. On top of that he owns an antique hardware store which is close to bankruptcy. While driving home Max is involved in a traffic accident which gives him amnesia. Confused, lost and in a disordered state, he wanders into a camp full of Latin American farm workers. There he finds a new meaning of life, happiness and a sense of belonging. However, as his memory slowly returns it's inevitable that he must confront his past. Written by Mattias Pettersson <seaman@sbbs.se>

Unique, thought provoking, solid all the way home.
2 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Unique storyline, with a possible nod to Lost Horizon, as a man going through a crisis gets amnesia, wanders into a village / camp of Mexican migrant workers and starts anew. As always Hector Elizondo steals every scene he's in and film provides another reason to love Beverly Garland. George C.brings along his Oscar winning ways and every performance here brims with sincere honesty. What a shame that this film is lingering in the vaults and not released on video or DVD. Nice location work in Texas brings a strong sense of reality to the storyline and the hard-line situations of the characters. Film grabs the viewer from start to finish and I didn't want the film to end.
