Movie Reviews

Subtle and very well done
triskaidekaphilia | Austin, TX | 12/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In these days of demonizing outsiders, this beautifully crafted film reminds the viewer that, at the bottom of it all, we are all human beings with the same hopes, fears, needs and desires. I wish this film were required viewing for anyone before they offer their opinion on any aspect of the immigration debate.
Perfect for the classroom or the family room
M. Sheldon | spokane, wa, usa | 04/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a poignant, artistic and insightful movie perfect for Spanish classes for a lot of it is in Spanish, but for other classrooms as well. It delves into the lives of three young children whose fathers have left their countries in search of work or better opportunities and in a candid way shows the pain and desolation of those left behind. It also depicts the lengths that a child will go to in order to be reunited with his/her father.
Sad, but realistically beautiful!"
Well done

"This was a beautifully and artistically done movie on a very current and important topic. It is objective and thought provoking. The acting and on site filming is superb. I caution parents with young children to screen it before showing it. It has some very strong content. The images and situations haunt you for days."

"This was a touching movie about three children one from Mexico, Middle East and Cuba. How they went about wanting to try and be with there father who was in another Country trying to make money for a better life for his family. I recommend seeing this touching movie."
