  • I really don't get it about this movie, I had high hopes for this movie and I hated it. My boyfriend and I drove a little over an hour to view this movie during the Latin American Film Festival in the DC area and honestly I was a bit disgusted by it. I was born in Costa Rican but my mother is Nicaraguen and it's no secret how bad Nicargua has been in the last years. I know all too well the the necessity to seek a better life no matter what you had to go through to get there. The movie touched on so many topics that were better left out of the movie, one in particular that in my opinion was only added for shock value which is what really disgusted me about it. I wish , or I should say, I hoped going to see it that this movie was going to shed more light on the actual arrival to Costa Rica. The ending... well you'll see what I mean. On a lighter note I found that the children's performance was awesome and the scenes in the movie are quite astounding.
