Slow encounter with U.S. immigrants - A Better Life review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
06/10/2012

The film is well acted, with some nice cinematography, and if you live in America or have an interest or connection with the lives of immigrants there, you could well enjoy this. I enjoy films with human interest, but even so I found this tediously slow with long elements of discussion between various Mexican immigrants, and not much drama to carry things through. The plot is really minimal, and I largely failed to connect or feel involved with either the father, the son, or the theft of their vehicle. However, if you are interested in this type of film, you could have a better experience.
