Great movie with great director and cast
This movie has a great sense of humor. Very irreverent at times, but at the end the film is so spiritual that you can see that the director was not poking fun at the people but at our human condition. This is a fable about what happens to a town when a miracle happens and everyone actually gets what he or she was wishing for.
The film is very well acted, well directed and really well shot. A great cast and a great new director. Tortilla Heaven also is a very positive portrayal of Hispanics and Hispanic family and community. Also of Mexican and Southwestern cooking. I went with three friends and we all left the theater hungry -- for food and for more movies like this!!!
