  4. maría f guerrero's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    It creates a beautiful, peaceful atmosphere tinted with innocence using a slow pace and short, sharp dialogues that reveal nothing, until Quemada-Diez hits us with the hard, uncomfortable truth most of us, as Mexicans, ignore or at least try to: our land to these immigrants is almost a synonymous of murder and torture.

  5. h's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    très très dur, sans pathos ni larme. magnifique description d'un voyage laborieux, jusqu'à une dernière scène qui conclue sans concession une histoire malheureusement banale : hyper réaliste.

  6. Ardhi Syaifuddin's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    One of the most recent depiction of the Central America-USA border immigration issue, watching it back to back with Siccario to get the feeling of the atmosphere.

  9. Amanda A.Costa's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    The american dream for some people is just a dream,unfortunately. This movie portraits the long journey from Guatemala to Mexico, and all the obstacles these boys had to face, but with a very slow narrative. The final is realistic though.

  10. Toby Ralph's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    Really really amazing, doesn't shy away from the gruesome realities of the journey up to the U.S!

  11. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    A fresh take on the migrant story that shifts the focus from the experience of alienation and potential loneliness of arrival in favour of the hardship and danger of the journey itself. In the vein of Sin Nombre, the Golden Dream is less stylised; sparse on dialog , documentary-like and a successful examination of youthful naivety. Beautifully shot. 4 stars

  12. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    aunque en general está bien y es muy acertado abordar ese tema, no es la primera vez que se hace y la película padece de profundidad en los personajes. en aras de una solvencia narrativa que va de guatemala a guatepeor, ante ciertos acontecimientos los personajes parecen de cartón. evitar a toda costa el melodrama o el sentimentalismo se lleva al extremo de personajes planos. la aparición de solalinde, excelente

  13. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    Apart from the authenticity felt, “The Golden Dream” better achievement was to expose a powerful sad story without resorting to sentimentality.

  14. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    The immigrant travelogue - especially the journey north to the U.S. - has become an entrenched movie genre. This one will reward your sympathy with unexpected heartaches.

  15. Corriel's rating of the film The Golden Dream

    I really liked this film for its poignant story, intriguing, likable characters, and documentary approach not lacking poetic moments.
