  • theozfer's rating of the film Back and Forth

    Como te ven te tratan, una historia que a simple vista puede ser cotidiana, sobre la migracion a estados unidos, pero es realmente una historia desgarradora y un grito desesperado de las voces que no escuchamos gritar, que gritan cuando les quitan su tierra y nadie dice nada, que gritan cuando el espiritu malinchista los ataca, que gritan para proteger a la familia mexicana y sus tradiciones. La recomiendo.
