User Reviews

Very recommended Mexican- German co-production.
10 September 2014 | by pablop64221See all my reviews

This is a fine movie related to the universal immigration "problem", but this film was solved with a very good script and intelligence for a nice history that makes feel great to all the viewers, giving a message of hope and friendship almost forgotten in the actual world ,it is a very, very fine history that you must see, regarding the "humanity" of certain people, leaving every kind prejudging when somebody has another language, history, customs, etc. but with a international "carisma" and a lot of good attitude for the others mainly old people.

The Photo was excellent, the acting was OK. and Ramon it is a real discovery for the Mexican young actors in cinema of this days, the Director is superb in some scenes showing with their "heart" some of the Mexican feelings in a situations as they were filmed in the movie. Is a real surprise to find the cinemas totally sold out in more than 4 weeks since the red carpet for showing to the public here in Mexico City
