Despite being an immigrant story, Entre Nos has surprisingly little to do with United States immigration policies. Though released during a period where the debate over immigration reform seems to be reaching a fever pitch, Entre Nos manages to avoid any overt political commentary on the subject. For some, this will undoubtedly be to the movie's detriment; however, Entre Nos works *because* it doesn't try to tackle any larger issues. It is a simple film, unburdened by any need to Tell Us How The World Really Is, and it is that simplicity that makes the film work on such a human level.

From a technical standpoint the film may not seem like anything special, but triple-threat director/writer/leading actress Paola Mendoza manages to infuse Entre Nos with a striking and palpable sense of gritty realism. New York is presented as neither a sterling metropolis nor a grime-infested deathtrap; it simply exists, as unconcerned with the main characters' plight as any random passerby. Speaking of Mendoza, it is her genuinely touching performance as Mariana that elevates the film to the level it is at. She is resilient and loving but also fearful and deeply hurt by her husband's betrayal; Mendoza tackles this emotional gauntlet like a seasoned veteran. Credit, too, must also be given to Laura Montana and Sebastian Villada - who play Mariana's children Andrea and Gabriel, respectively - as their performances are as equally real as Mendoza's, without the stiffness and wooden delivery that so often plagues child actors.

Entre Nos may not be for everyone. It's a sparse and quiet film that doesn't attempt to explain or solve the issues that surround immigration. However, in a time when the facts about immigration reform are frequently be boiled down to mere numbers and statistics, Entre Nos serves as a reminder that, for all the talk of stolen jobs and welfare exploitation, there is a human element involved that is all too frequently forgotten.

"Entre Nos" is based on a true story in which Paola Mendoza makes her amazing debut as writer/director/star of this film with the help of writer/director Gloria La Morte. Mariana has to find ways to provide for her family of two young children, Gabriel played by Sebastian Villada Lopez and Andrea played by Laura Montana Cortez after their father abandons them after they immigrate from Colombia to the U.S. where she barely speaks the language.

Years earlier, Mariana's husband immigrated to New York and she rejoins him with the kids to reunite the family. Two weeks later, he announces he is taking a new job in Miami and move there alone for a few months sending them money and then return. After a while, she figures out he will not be coming back and with rent due has to find a way to fend for herself and the children in a strange country starting with making empanadas and later collecting cans.

Mendoza's struggle and emotional endurance in this film is masterful. The two children are endearing and very honest in their characters. They try their best to help their mother but also need to have fun once in a while in order to keep the balance since they work all the time. This is a very well-done film that is inspiring to see what a person can accomplish when their back is to the wall.

Mendoza and fellow writer Gloria La Morte flawlessly capture the desperation of the family's situation, but even more importantly their closeness, desire to be together, and love for each other that manages to keep their spirits up even in the darkest of times.

This is a must see film so we all can understand what the immigrant experience is like. We are all sons and daughters of immigrants, even if it was during a different generation. We need immigration reform!

I normally don't cry while watching films, but this film makes it hard to pull that off! The film has so much heart, so much emotion that its hard not to get involved and become one with the characters. The story reaches out to you and almost makes you want to become a part of it. This is one of the best independent films that I've seen and it deserves all the credit that it can get.

Paola Mendoza's performance in this film is exceptional. I'd previously seen her in On the Outs and thought she was good in it, but her acting is on a different level all together in this film. The two kids, Sebastian Villada & Laura Montana, play the characters of Gabriel & Andrea so well. Along with the story, the casting and most importantly the acting are the strong points of this film. Once can only imagine the kind of directing that must have gone into this film to bring it all together and make it work so well.

I personally give this film two thumbs up and highly recommend this film!

After living abroad for over a year and dealing with a language barrier, I connected with the mother in her times of frustration when the simplest of phrases where so hard to communicate.
Coming from a home with a single mother the movie struck a note with me. Those that were maybe in similar situations with a single guardian will connect with this movie. There are times when you are at the verge of tears, and then times when things seem awful and somehow the characters are able to find some bit of joy. I'd say it seemed pretty realistic.
