    It really was a powerful experience to see this film at Sundance. Had the opportunity to meet the director and felt equality touch by his sincerity. Should be a must seen film for young audiences and especially for those first or second generation of immigrant children. It tell a lot about inter generational and cultural merges.

    Though an admirable attempt to allow the characters to tell their own story in their own voices, docu may be a bit too freely associative, as it becomes difficult at times to identify individual characters... Picture's second half, which proceeds in a more linear fashion, is resolutely gripping.
  2. The film is lyrical, expansive, unbearably beautiful.

    Impressionistic and lyrical, as well as somber and gripping, The Betrayal conveys a ceaseless flow. It's as if the filmmaker has opened a window onto a parallel world traveling beside our own.
