    This is the first film to approach the subject of "undocumented workers" solely through their eyes. This is not one of those docudramas where we half-expect a test at the end, but a film like "The Grapes of Wrath" that gets inside the hearts of its characters and lives with them.
  2. This drama - a kind of cross between ''The Grapes of Wrath'' and the rich textures of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's tales - focuses on two oppressed but hopeful Guatemalan Indians who flee to the United States.
  3. An effective and moving drama about the strength of the human spirit and the will to survive.

    Comes across as a kind of giant Renaissance canvas.

    Nava has made a film that is essentially indistinguishable from "Love Story."
