Al Otro Lado (2005)
Critic Reviews for Al Otro Lado
... goes so deep into Mexican corrido music that we end up learning more about poverty, illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and their attendant subcultures than we are comfortable knowing.
We're left unable to get the music -- and the musicians -- out of our heads.
Al Otro Lado serves as a primer on a musical style that may be unfamiliar to many, while putting a human face on the problem of illegal immigrants.
This infectious documentary by Natalia Almanda sings clear and strong when it sticks to translating the culture of corrido music for gringos.
Humane, visually exquisite and resists simple descriptions while moving toward a more mainstream non-fiction form.
Audience Reviews for Al Otro Lado
Nice movie. Very moving. I tend to love movies that revolve around children, and this one was no exception. This movie bounces back and forth with 3 different stories, but it is done so smoothly that it is very clear, and easy to follow. Well done! ...Subtitles
