Critics reviews

There’s nothing at stake in Tortilla Soup, which is striking when one considers that the film passingly references every fear haunting American life: death, aging, loneliness, the revolt of children, and confusion of racial and national identity. Director Maria Ripoll regards these issues as metaphorical garnishes for the soup that is her film: They’re for superficial texture, but the pervading recipe is unchallenging and old-fashioned. This square-ness works inTortilla Soup’s favor.
