Editorial Reviews

More than just a documentary dispatch from the illegal immigration frontlines, Mark Becker's Romantico evolves from a verite view of undocumented alien subculture to a deeply personal, "beautifully realized" (NY Post), subtly-hued, and bittersweet dramatic story of family, fatherhood, identity and survival. By day, Mariachi Carmelo Muniz washes cars, but at night, he and his friend Arturo perform norteno and ranchero music for gringo tips in the taquerias and bars of San Francisco's Mission District. Carmelo's meager itinerant living belies the deep roots and binding ties he has to his native Mexico. His wife, two young daughters, and gravely ill mother rely on the money Carmelo sends to them in the little town of Salvatierra. When Carmelo returns to the life and loved ones he left behind a thousand miles south of the border, he resumes the wearying struggle against medieval poverty that he sought to escape in "el Norte." As Carmelo doggedly copes with his mother's mortality, his daughters' needs, and his own dreams, Romantico becomes an unforgettable and "immensely Moving" (NY Daily News) portrait of love, pride, and grace connecting one life with two countries.
