What gives Chantal Akerman's video documentary about illegal Mexican aliens in the U.S. so much bite as well as poignancy is her personal investment in the material. It's felt in her haunted and highly evocative lingering over landscapes (an Akerman specialty), as well as in her subtitled interviews with Mexicans in Spanish and a few Americans in English. These are capped by her own highly moving monologue in French. A major work that creeps up on you gradually (2002). 99 min.
