Trailerama: Norteado

October 26, 2009

Oaxaca farmer Andres has been unsuccessful in his efforts to jump the fence into the United States. He ends up cooling his weary heels at a Tijuana supermarket. With each failed attempt, he gets to know the two women who run the place a little better. Friendships are formed. But what’s Andres going to do if he ever makes it to the promised land? Writer-director Rigoberto Perezcano’s feature debut looks like a bittersweet comedy with a topical edge. Mexico, as usual, does a magnificent job of playing itself.
