(2006) American Visa
(In Mexico with English subtitles)

Low budget and another strictly by the book film about ordinary Mexican man leaving his teaching days behind to live in the United States where his already grown up son's been living assuming that he could slip through the cracks through immigration and the officials put a harder stance on Mexican visitors since others may have tried a similar tactic and doesn't realize it forcing him to resort to doing something illegal.

The politics and the system regarding people who want to go past the border is interesting but everything else is nothing new.

BAstante buena, la direccion es muy interesante, no mediocre o amateur como suelen ser peliculas nacionales. La trama ofrece algunos puntos interesantes, aunque abundan los intentos pobres y obvios de critica social, a base de comentarios sobreentendidos y cliches. LA actuacion no es muy buena, pero no tan mala tampoco. La musicalizacion y edicion me gusto mucho. Algunas de las secuencias de sexo parecen no relacionarse o ser necesarias en la trama para nada. PArece que la pelicula intenta responder la pregunta que se plantea en algun momento ¿ Cuál es el sueño boliviano?

Surprisingly solid action-comedy from Bolivia, about a professor looking to get a tourist visa so he can join his son living illegally in the United States. It makes Bolivia look absolutely beautiful, and I like that the US Embassy people are shown as mysteriously suave and not as villains. A really entertaining film.

Muy Buena, Excelente! Esa historia de amor es complicada y triste pero causó en mi mucha ternura. La actuación fue muy buena y puedo decir que vi la situación de mi país reflejada en ella. Le quité una estrella como se desarrollo el asunto del robo porque fue poco creíble y porque tenía demasiadas escenas fuertes.

Good movieee. Even though the book is better and have a different ending. Also one bad thing is the acent of the streeper, cus it´s more a colombian one. The acent of "Bolivian -oriental" people is so much different

I liked the movie because of the funny and at the same time crazy and sad way in which Latinos are trying to get an American Visa. It's laughing and crying...

Un film bolivien sur les peripeties d'un homme cherchant a obtenir un visa pour "gringolandia"...Bons acteurs...argentins ! Avec des belles vues de Bolivie.

It's an interesting and funny Bolivian film about all the hoops that people jump to get an American visa... with so many hopes and dreams shattered, terrible and not so bad consequences. It's really good!

Bra boliviansk film, som handlar om verkligheten fr mnga bolivianer, dock kanske inte s mycket om de allra fattigaste.

this movie is awesome since i am a bolivian. and i can tell that there is no exageration. the only thing no real in it is the streaper. not everyone from beni is like that.

this movie reflects the reality of millions of bolivians seeking visas to the states. unfortunately as a fiction its too exaggerated to be believable. but you should watch it for the political truth that it reveals.
