Movie Reviews

Great story; visually beautiful
Charlotte B. Miller | St. Louis, MO, USA | 06/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Coyotes is a wonderful movie that weaves the dynamics of relationships, cultures, families and expectations into a story both simple and complex. The main characters portray the basic human yearning to belong as they stumble over obstacles toward the surprising resolution to their dilemmas. The setting is beautifully captured by the stunning cinematography and the acting is sweetly subtle, supported by concise dialog and understated expressions. This is a great movie to have on hand for home viewing with guests and those who delight in undiscovered movie gems."
A Rare Film - Tender and Moving
Swan | Los Angeles, CA USA | 05/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very special film. It touches the heart without being maudlin or sappy. Produced in a simple, straight-forward style, "Coyotes" is nonetheless extremely effective. There is no need for bells and whistles; character depth effectively conveys the heartfelt and sometimes bittersweet love between a father and daughter. As the story shows, there is a time when we all have to accept our parents (or other loved ones) for what they are and let go of our childhood ideals of how they should be. The fact that this not only doesn't erode the affection between the two comes through clear as a bell. Indeed, sometimes, if we're lucky, the love only grows deeper."
Viva Mexico
Jeffery A. Morales | Rockville, MD USA | 05/12/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I thoroughly enjoyed this sensitive and thoughtful road movie. The father- daughter relationship works well thanks to an impressive performance by young Kirsten Carmody. From a Hispanic viewer's perspective, I found the portrayal of Mexico as a place of welcoming refuge and familial bonds a refreshing departure from it's common depiction of corruption and poverty. Beautifully shot."
Timely and Touching
Beth Martin Brown | Los Angeles, CA | 05/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The complexities of a father/teen-aged daughter's relationship are believably explored via the backdrop of the timely and arguable topic of illegal immigration. Sympathetic and realistic characters are portrayed through thoroughly convincing acting. A story definitely worth seeing...and sharing. Coyotes defines a new genre of storytelling in the mode of a modern,classic short story (ala Raymond Carver type characters) on film."
