    Although not what American studios generally mean by "family fare," this drama is actually excellent family viewing -- it both opens a window onto another culture and, through Antonio, speaks the universal language of teen angst.
  2. Reviewed by: Phil Hall
    A dull film, inspired by a true story.
  3. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    Debuting helmer Vicente Amorim provides a determined forward movement, which, while lacking in cultural explanation, gives the saga uplift and punch.
  4. Wants to be both a realistic family drama and a mythical odyssey but lacks the substance to be much more than a vignette.
  5. In the depiction of this unlikely journey -- it is supposedly based on a real-life story -- the film awkwardly veers between naturalism and a striving for poetic myth.
