Critic Reviews for Alambrista!
Roberto endures and escapes one random set of dire circumstances after another without feeling contrived or stopping for cheap sentimental tricks. He even makes a certain selfish choice, but at the time, after what he's been through, who could blame him?
Now the film can be more fully appreciated for what it is: an influential inspiration to Latino filmmakers and a powerful, non-politicized depiction of the wages of American immigration policy. [Blu-ray]
A worthy social drama on the heartbreaking hardships of being a Mexican illegal in the States.
Audience Reviews for Alambrista!
The scene where Dmingo Ambriz's characters "girlfriend" the waitress was trying to help him send a money order back home, Asked a customer to translate & then found out he was sending $$$ back home to his wife was hilarious! Also where he & his buddy were riding in the Cadillac on the car trailer on top of a moving train looked like fun.Shame his buddy had to be an idiot
