Robert M. Young United States, 1977

Graveyard Poet's rating of the film ¡Alambrista!

The actors feel and look like real life people. The film is shot in a gritty documentary verite style that fits the story of the lonely Mexican worker Roberto seeking better pay in the U.S. to support his poor wife and child back home only to confront disappointment, dislocation, frustration, and isolation.
