| One of the best films on the subject of Mexican border crossings
This film is one of the best I have seen on Mexican border crossings. The reality of life on the Mexican side of the border vs. the false promises of life in the United States is very well done. The conflict among the Mexicans on both sides of the border is depicted very well. The screenplay captures the abject poverty and the need for change. We should remove the borders and take the money we are spending now for health care and education and stop catering to the right wing racists. We have lost the battle to control our borders and this film shows that in great detail. The relationship between the American siblings is highlighted by the similarities in the Mexican community. The metaphor of the whales not having any borders in the water speaks volumes about freedom and the desire to be able to travel freely without government interference. The cinematography was right on. I have lived in Mexico and in Central America and there is little or no public lighting of streets and pathways. It adds to the mystery of the country. The interjection of the bandits shows how Mexicans are victimized on both sides of the border. Crime does not have any borders.
