Movie Info

The story is old as the hills, yet every day it continues to unfold, every day more terribly.Sometimes poor people, in an attempt to survive, risk their lives and leave everything behind to live elsewhere. But they're not wanted elsewhere. And if they are wanted it's for their labor, to do jobs that no one wants to do. Some will pay for others to do those jobs, but not much.In FROM THE OTHER SIDE, elsewhere is the United States and the poor are mostly Mexicans. Renowned filmmaker Chantal Akerman

A highly stylized and artsy documentary that is more concerned with emotionalism and visual expressiveness than facts.

A spare, painterly and scrupulously unsentimental look at the plight of illegal Mexican immigrants massed at the United States border.

Akerman's characteristically patient, pensive approach elegantly accommodates her reportorial responsibilities.

Akerman assumes the persona of a visitor who is probing the surface with the keen eye of a trained observer, but also with the humility of a stranger.

Thought-provoking documentary on illegal immigrants.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This film goes for more of a stylistic effect leaving the political impact secondary. A more effective approach would have made this much more the film that was needed.

Chantal Akerman's new documentary is bewilderingly narrow.

January 31, 2005 Full Review Source: ToxicUniverse.com

Akerman spends so much time capturing non-events, albeit picturesquely, she misses out on the opportunity to delve deeper into the plights of the people themselves.

Akerman is a first-rate visual artist, and the film's most eloquent passages are her long, silent shots of the landscape that soon reveal deeper layers of meaning.
