Critic Reviews for Entre nos (Between Us)
Left with pacing, composition and atmosphere, and scenes with the children in particular (Sebastian Villada Lopez and Laura Montana Cortez, each remarkable) have charm and authenticity.
The films sleeve-worn earnestness is both its strength and its primary flaw.
This film may seem little on the outside, but it contains powerful humanity and deep empathy.
Audience Reviews for Entre nos (Between Us)
I really liked this movie. It is based on real-life...which are my favorite movies to watch. I was especially interested to know that the actress who played the mother (in the movie) was actually the real-life daughter of the mother in the story...AND the producer of the movie!! After watching this movie....you will acquire a deeper appreciation for what you do have in life.
Excellent Spanish film. Superb acting. Great plot. Must watch. Subtitles. About a woman whose husband runs out on her and her kids. People can relate to this. Emotional, interesting.
Inspired by a true story,Entre Nos is an uplifting,tender,and very moving film about what a mother does during an unthinkable situation. Paola Mendoza does an amazing double job as the director of the film,and also in the role of the mother,giving a heart-tugging and inspiring perfomance. She make this film in honor of her mother,who she plays in the film,a loving and grateful gift to her mom. One of Michael Moore's 20 "Best Pictures" of 2009. A remarkable independent film from a very talented lady!
