Editorial Reviews

Mario Alvarez (Demián Bichir) dreams of reuniting with his son and starting a new life in the United States, however obtaining a visa in Bolivia amidst corruption and harsh laws designed to curb immigration is no easy task. In director Juan Carlos Valdivia's thoughtful meditation on the post-9/11 political climate, one man will be forced to resort to questionable methods to achieve his goal. Mario's diligent efforts to escape to the U.S. are soon complicated, when he falls for a beautiful dancer, Blanca (Kate del Castillo) who offers new option for him to remain in Bolivia.

Two things keep you glued to this movie. Well, make that three things. The story of a working class Bolivian guy who wants to get a visa to visit his son in America. When he runs into complications during his stay in Lima, he decides to heist some cash from a gold broker to grease the palm of corrupt officials. Meanwhile his neighbor, a stripper-with-the-proverbial-heart-of-gold takes a liking to him. She takes him to her club and he watches her dance. Worth renting the movie for that scene alone. So we (a) wonder whether she'll get her guy and (b) whether he'll pull off the heist without getting caught or killed, and (c) whether he'll ever get to America.

Lots of helicopter shots of Lima on clear days and nights, so this ain't Slumdog, although I'm sure Lima has lots of them. Well worth renting or owning, simply to see how Latin filmmakers make movies without resorting to (a) fistfights or (b) shootouts to move the story along. Very good performances by both leads, Kate del Castillo especially.

I rented this because I was drawn to the unique storyline and because I love kate and demian.

however, the plot was pretty weak, which caused the actors to be less than incredible and instead give pretty forgettable performances. my guess is that the directing was not as good as it could have been, which compromised the overall impact of the movie.

I recommend it to watch but not to buy.

No me gusta. Es una mala representación de Bolivia. No tiene sentido.
I did not like this movie at all. It has a bad image for Bolivia. It was not written well, had no real theme or point. It is full of stereotypes.

Spoilt Columbiana with a rich family waited on hand and foot meets and marries on rebound a nice Jewish boy [whose parents virtually disown him because he married outside his religion] who takes her to America. The dream tuns sour for her as she has no housekeeping skills and no maid..feeling homesick she flees back home...meets up with the bloke who betrayed her [with another woman] gives him another chance only to be re-Betrayed...nice Jewish boy comes to Colombia...they reuite and live happily ever after...bland pap...the women are attractive...the photography is great...the storyline weak,paint by numbers formulaic...the film meanders... I have seen it done better...ok if you don't want to strain the brain...there is a sense of unreality about the whole story
