I bought this DVD based on the good reviews here and also for the lead actor, Gustavo Sanchez Parra, who has been a mainstay of the New Mexican Cinema movement for the last decade. While 7 Soles was interesting and definitely had some bright spots, overall it's a far cry short of the many great Mexican films of the 2000s. In fact, it feels more like a well-produced television movie.

First the positives: Sanchez Parra gives a good performance, in this his first leading actor credit that I have seen. Some of the camerawork is also excellent: for example there is a still scene of a truck driving past a border fence, which is a marvelous exercise in artistic simplicity (it feels just like Gabriel Figueroa in color). There are several shots like that. Also, the off-angle aerial shots of Chicago do a great job of capturing the awe of life in a bustling American metropolis, especially when contrasted with the slow-moving pace of life in the Mexican village. The effect is to dizzy you at the wonder, much as a rural immigrant might see it upon their own arrival. Finally, the details of the Mexican village are spot-on accurate, down to the tablecloth in the kitchen and the mesquite tree in the yard. The process of migration with the coyotes is in many cases also very accurately portrayed.

While the negatives never really ruined my enjoyment of the film, they almost immediately disqualify 7 Soles from consideration as a serious piece of filmmaking. First of all are the performances: many of the actors here don't shine past daytime soap opera quality.

Qué maravilla de película, es importante que sepamos lo que muchos viven para lograr un sueño y una mejor calidad de vida! Este DVD debería estar en la colección de todos los inmigrantes de los estados unidos para que no olvidemos de dónde venimos y como vinimos!

This is a great film: the writing, acting, directing, etc. A must watch for all U.S. tweens & teens & adults as it is educational & will assist one in appreciating what we have here in the states. It should also educate one as to the plight of poor Mexicans...I watched this several times.

My heart broke to see what immigrants go through trying to come to America for a better life. This was an eye opener and a must see for those who don't know what others go through trying to find a better life.

This movie is very well written and acted and gives a vivid image of what many people go through trying to cross the border in order to seek a better life for themselves and their children. All crossings are difficult and dangerous, some more than others. And unfortunately, a lot of people die. Is it really worth it? Evidently a lot of people think it's worth the risk. Very touching movie. I had to just sit and think for a while after it was over.

i had seen this movie before. as an advocate foir the hispanics in my area, this film really touched me. i have a new-found appreciation of what they go through to get to a better place. i have watched this with those who have first hand knowledge and have experienced similar accounts. i plan to use this as a teaching tool for those "americans" who are narrow minded to raise awareness of their plight.

This Story couldn't be more realisticly made, about what happens when someone tries to cross the boarder illegaly to have a better life and who want to help their family members back home by risking their own lives. A MUST SEE!
