Great movie! Its uplifting message remains in the heart and mind of the viewer forever. It inspires, it doesn't degrade as so many films.

A Mexican movie in which the outcome is never in doubt, the scenes are endless -- sorry, we meant poetic-- and the false beard on the central character's face looks as though it could use a little extra gum. Full Review

In this bilingual morality movie about love, family, and fate, however, the unpredictability turns out to be highly predictable. Full Review

In stories like this defiantly unsubtle, structurally clunky specimen, causes women who are considering abortion to think again, and self-selecting audiences to enjoy a light, luxurious weep. Full Review
