This film is absolutely fantastic!
"Alambrista" is a groundbreaking film about a man's decision to move to United States and leave everything that he has behind to start a new life in the pursuit of the American Dream. In this new land, he learns that the American Dream is not easily acquired and maybe and impossibility to attain for some, and he is forced to make some tough choices. I liked this film because the directing is great and the mis-en-scene and the characters are strikingly realistic. The message at the end of the film is one of hope that there is a brighter future, in due time, for new immigrants,
