I would like to begin by stating that Kiarostami was the dude of Iranian childhood cinema - i would in fact refer to him as 'the one man Sesame Street of Iran' - I am however very sorry to say that this documentary is just long winded i.e. sticking a camera in a car and recording people can be as interesting as watching paint dry. Kiarostami if you ever come across this review take your sun-shades off and read my words -- This documentary made me cringe -- it?s not that I don?t understand what you are attempting to portray about Iranian society, even though i find you quite condescending, but instead it?s just the case that you lost my interest. I admit i have a short attention span, however, theoretically you could have cut and edited the best bits out this documentary and made it into a 10 minute you-tube video. This is nothing more than a final year university project. If I was a smeg-head college professor I would have given you an A++++.. Sadly however I am nothing more than a mere plebeian and have made the decision to gauge out my eyes...

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.

Funny movie about two Mexicans who illegally crossed the border of US but didn't find "American dream" there...

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.
