"East Side Sushi" is a charming little picture.
Lucero compensates for ... missteps with subtly persuasive visual choices and narrative restraint.
East Side Sushi captures the grind and pleasure of the food industry as Juana shifts from numbing routine to a challenging cuisine.
Anthony Lucero's delectable debut feature has its share of on-the-nose writing and Cinderella-story contrivances, but for the most part folds its cross-cultural insights into a pleasing underdog narrative.
A rather humanist tone infuses "East Side Sushi," offering a sense of hope as characters choose to come together rather than be pulled apart.
Endearing performances, accomplished low-budget filmmaking and a distinctive urban setting all add up to an appetizing offering.
Digestible cross-cultural food film.
A good movie to watch on your spare-time. [Full review in Spanish]
A simple, family-friendly film with a solid message. [Full review in Spanish]
The film is well intentioned, but it's poorly executed. [Full review in Spanish]
A small, effective and plentiful film for the whole family. [Full review in Spanish]
