I highly recommend this film!
20 October 1999 | by salibianSee all my reviews

This film was very beautiful and quite moving. While watching it, I noticed how wonderfully the cinematographer (Harlan Bosmajian) had captured the light throughout the four vignettes of the film. He created an intimacy between he characters and the viewer that many attempt to do these days but just spoil by giving the viewer too much "eye candy." The director, David Riker has done such a good job with this film, I highly recommend it and urge everyone to see it as soon as possible. Riker not only shows us how many immigrants live and work in this country, but he shows it in a way that we can all relate to it. I thought of my parents and wondered how their own immigration process was. Visually, emotionally, and intellectually, this is definitely a film to experience. Go see it!
