Raw and Real

Entre Nos is an inspiring film about a family who's bound together by love and strength. The film stars Paola Mendoza, the real life main character, Mariana's, granddaughter, who also co-wrote and co-directed the film. The film has been screened at over 14 film festivals and has won several awards. The film is about Mariana. Her husband leaves her to fend and provide for her two young children in the city. By doing small illegal immigrant work, such as sewing and dishwashing, selling empanadas, and collecting cans to trade in for cash, slowly Mariana tries to save her family and rebuild themselves a home in the United States. The theme though out the film seems to be the value of family. Mariana's strong, loving bond with her children, Gabi and Andrea, keep this family together while going through devastating circumstances. This film contains very little dialogue and is told through beautiful filmography and very strong emotions. Language barriers are no issue in this film, however. No matter what language you speak, emotions speak louder. The music is hopeful and reminds the audience of this family's strength and the hope they have burning in their hearts. This film is not for the faint of heart. This family goes through very difficult times. What I most admire about Mariana and her children is that they go through these with dignity and morality. They are kind people who put each other above themselves. Mariana is a loving mother who will do anything to protect her children. One scene in particular demonstrates this beautifully. An image of Mariana is shown sitting on a park bench on a cold night with Gabi and Andrea lying on her lap asleep. This is symbolic to Michelangelo's La Pieta, an image of the Virgin Mary holding Christ in her arms after the crucifixion. This is a beautiful image showing Mariana's strength protecting her children, watching over them in her arms, while looking toward the heaven praying for the strength to continue protecting them. Entre Nos is a beautiful film full of strength. The acting is mainly expressed through emotions, very well I may add. It is similar to The Pursuit of Happiness except more raw and real. This story is very powerful and full of emotion. I would highly recommend Entre Nos.
