Una aproximación superficial al fenómeno de la inmigración y la Mara Salvatrucha. El guión y los diálogos resultan convencionales y predecibles. La fotografía y el diseño de producción se destacan por contribuir a una atmósfera que respira autenticidad, a pesar de los defectos acotados anteriormente.
I had no idea this was directed by an American film maker. Interesting. And absolutely brilliant. Heartbreakingly real from what I know of MS13 and the Immigration status between Mexico and the US...my husband made that journey from Mexico City...and believe me not everyone does make it, even when they don't have La Mata after them. This film stayed with me for days. Brilliant acting, excellent film.
What an incredible journey, a colorful and violent "road" movie. It's seldom that a movie commands your attention and empathy from beginning to end. Every shot is drenched with character emotion. Every frame takes us into the world of immigrants, travelers and gang members- of fathers and daughters and brothers. "Sin Nombre" is an unsettling celluloid poem depicting both suffering and enduring hope.
