From the very first moments of El Norte, we know that we are in the hands of a great movie.

It is beautifully lensed and comes across as a kind of giant Renaissance canvas.

El Norte is not exactly a great film, but it's a very good one that, through the devices of fiction, manages to provoke a number of healthily contradictory feelings about the world we all inhabit at the moment.

Though his subject is a serious one and his intentions are apparently noble, Nava has made a film that is essentially indistinguishable from Love Story.
