this review is from: Entre Nos (DVD)

I recently became a fan of independet films, watching this film reminded me of my mother in a better enviorment. We too came from Colombia after my fathe passed away and it was hard but we accepted seeing our mother working as a bussiness woman to cleaning houses. we lived in a basement apartment and thank God we had our family.
It doens't matter how much better or worse you had it, it was hard coming to this country
Hands down one of the best movies I've seen!

this review is from: Entre Nos (DVD)

This was a wonderful film, I truly enjoyed everything about it, especially the way Mariana remained loving and continued to be a mother first. The children were sweet and adaptable, as children are and the story was one that could be told by many I'm certain. Most Americans can trace their family back to another country at some point in their lineage, meaning that we were all immigrants at one point. Legal immigration to the U.S. is a long and difficult process and those who are able to fulfill that dream truly love this country and are valuable citizens and just as American as anyone else. I for one, teach English to immigrants because this issue is important to me, I try to put myself in the shoes of starting over in a new country and realize how a little kindness goes a long, long way.

written by alyssa on Jun 10th, 2011read all my reviews

this review is from: Entre Nos (ON DEMAND)

Entre Nos is a very touching story about a Columbian woman struggling to survive in New York with her two kids after her husband left her. The movie is based on a true story and displays the extreme courage and strength of Mariana Mendoza as she fights to keep whats left of her family together without a job or a home in a country who's language she does not know.
