Cruzando (English Subtitled) 2007 NR

Available on Prime
3.3 out of 5 stars (30) IMDb 5.4/10

Many earnest films have been made recently about the struggles of Latin American migrants trying to cross into the U.S. for a better tomorrow; CRUZANDO isn't one of them. This madcap adventure follows the journey of two Mexican no?hopers. CRUZANDO chronicles the real?life hazards of such a trip but is as much a comedy as it is a drama.

My parents and I watched this movie together and we LOVED it! My father was born in Mexico and he was truly moved by it. He said this was one of the few movies that captured the true essesnce of the Latin culture. He said the generosity of the people and the adventurous spirit were all there. He plans on buying a copy for all of his (9) brothers and sisters.
I would say it should be on EVERYONE's must see list.

This movie is revealing, hilarious, smart, a little bit madcap and touching all at once. I loved it. It opens up a world I don't know much about and presents characters that I love knowing about. The road trip storyline is almost a romp at times, but the film has emotional depth (the roles are really well-crafted), cultural insights (Mexican immigration), documentary qualities (the perils of border-crossing) and some killer visuals, too. So it's an all-around awesome movie.

This film poignantly illuminates the physical, emotional, and spiritual struggle of cruzando (crossing), reminding us- no matter our politics- of the humanity behind the "issue" of illegal immigration. Anyone with a background or interest in the Mexican-American experience will be drawn in and enjoy the ride as the main character metaphorically crosses from abandon and indifference into acceptance and clarity of purpose. The heavy theme is brilliantly shrouded by colorful, lovable characters and an understated hilarity throughout. I laughed and cried.

Powerful acting. Breathtaking scenery. A new favorite of mine.

P.S. If you're even remotely interested in seeing this but have reservations because you don't know Spanish, don't be deterred. The dialog is minimal, and you'll be quickly immersed in the story, likely forgetting you're reading subtitles.

For Amazon to tell us that this is not one of the "earnest" films about the borderlands is to completely miss it's authenticity. I have lived on the border for 30 years. Gringo or Mexicano, everyone has a border story. This is a fine film that rings completely true. The absurdity is only a relief valve, an absurdity that is genuine in Mexican culture. When you have no more tears, no more broken hearts, no more dreams, you laugh. This is an honest portrayal of the borderlands with a huge beating, blood pumping Mexican heart.

Saw this film at the Latino film fest here in NY about 2 years ago..and was really blown away..not only cause I know many of the players in the film, but because of its story..production values and artistry..hard to believe it was done on the fly w/minimal budget..Aside from that it, its scope and ideas and entertainment values are on a par w/a budget of a Spielberg film..Funny, poignant, moving..and in the end a fun 2hrs.
A young man from a Mexican border town sets out to find his father who is in a jail in Texas..setting off search, not only for his father but within himself..You'll enjoy this.

This is one of those rare films that is filled with nostalgia and adventure but is also hilarious! I saw it at a film festival in NY and then again in Los Angeles and I have to say it is extraordinary.

As a human rights worker, my opinion is skewed by all the things I know about the miseries of crossing the border. But, for a light introduction on the subject for kids, this is amusing enough. Probably most people haven't the stomach for truth.
