Not a bad film
16 April 2018 | by tprspanSee all my reviews

I saw this at the Chicago Latino Film Festival in April of '18, and it was not bad. It's a smaller film, and the two lead actors namely Paulina Garcia and Mr. Rissi seem to to keep the film going. The character played by Paulina Garcia is a maid who has worked for one family for a very long time, but is now going to be working at another home, and they are friends or relatives of her current employers, but they live in another city, so the maid has to travel there. Along the way, she meets el Gringo, played by Mr. Rissi, who agrees to give her a ride at some point, and a relationship begins to develop between them. During the trip, there are flashbacks to her final days with the family for which she has cared all these years. Directing, and again, good acting make this film worth watching.
