REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..aided immeasurably by first-rate actors, marvelous cinematography by Javier Aguirresarobe, and low-key but dramatically surging mood music by Alexandre Desplat..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..seems like one of those docudramas that beg to be rewarded solely for their good intentions. But Chris Weitz cuts deep in this tale..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..weaves the torpor and anxiety of immigrant life into something dramatically true, if at moments a bit draggy..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
