ALL OF ME tells the story of the Patronas, a group of Mexican women who, every day since 1995, make food and toss it to the helpless as the train rushes by. In the midst of a country at war in a world where all hope seems lost, the Patronas breathe life into a human value that seems fading with each day: love for one another.
Certainly a film worth watching! The love and work of Las Patronas is astonishing and aspiring! They help immigrants without asking for anything in return. But in turn, they receive fulfilling and utter thankfulness from strangers, to who they lend their loving work!
Good-hearted documentary about poor and impoverished women giving food rations to the migrants who come riding on the train. This one will tug at your heart if you value human life. It shows the compassion and altruism in all parts of the world.
This movie sheds light on a group of amazing women putting themselves at risk to help people they've never met. A beautiful and moving tale - but I wish the storytellers had done a better job! They NEVER explain what "la bestia" actually is, who the people ARE on the train, why they are riding on the train instead of walking, etc. They focus on the details of the women without giving the whole picture. I showed this video in my Spanish classes because it is so beautiful what the women are doing, but I had to sandwich it between lectures about WHAT they were about to see since the video explains NOTHING!
