    A rousing, sometimes funny, frequently depressing documentary.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Janice Page

    Roughly translated, Touchez pas au Grisbi means ''don't touch the loot.'' But in literal terms, this film version of Albert Simonin's blockbuster really couldn't care less who ends up with the cash.

    As funny as it is sharp.

    A well-crafted, bravely revealing little film that could be considered essential education for baseball fans. It's just a bonus that the documentary is so entertaining.

    Because Manito is really just an opera without the violins or Viking hats, you probably don't need to have everything spelled out. Its Spanish-English script is secondary to the universal language and timeless drama of family, community, dreams made and dreams dashed.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    fully devotes itself to painting a family portrait seldom allowed such rich cinematic detail.

    • 75 Janice Page
    This is a ride, a video game, a soundtrack -- unapologetic and clearly labeled as such. It has no middle speed.
