All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The connections [Kiarostami] makes between his cinema and Italian neo-realism will interest scholars, students and fledgling directors.

Top Critic

A tediously didactic, often condescendingly reductive 10-part lesson on cinema.

Top Critic

Less illuminating than pedantic, as well as tediously self-absorbed.

Top Critic

His approach to filmmaking is highly individualistic, though much of his individual style is an adaptation to the constraints of making films in Iran.

Even the most loyal fans of the Iranian master won't want to pass up the chance to see this.

Audience Reviews for America 101

If there were a way to give this thing 0 stars I would. This movie made me ashamed to be a Mexican. If you ever come across this turd of a movie, please don't watch it.

6.5/10. Amusing story of two brothers illegally entering the USA from Mexico and the rough experiences they have in the transition. Very winningly portrayed by Miguel Castro and Richard Azurdia, they pull the film together and make it work. Very enjoyable. Short and sweet.
