Wow, what a film.
Very, very bleak in spells but never anything short of compelling. Reading that the film was shot on trains carrying actual immigrants as they make a break for the border only emphasises more how powerful the struggle is for these people. And is there anyone on earth scarier than Mexican gangs? (Insert 'Millwall fans' here).
I really recommend this film to anyone, not just people with an interest in 'Foreign Film'.
Has anyone else seen it?
NB: Hilarious moment at the end whena group of chavs walked out, proclaiming, 'this is bollocks bruv' because apparently they had been missold on the film and expected Mexican scarface, not a bleak love story which involves Mexican gangs.
