Film Forward reviewer Kent Turner praised Rigoberto Perezcano’s tale of illegal immigration as ”the most surprising film,“ in the Lincoln Center/MoMA series, ”New Directors/New Films.“ It centers on Andres, a farmer from Oaxaca, who is caught crossing the border illegally and ends up stranded in Tijuana. There, killing time before he tries crossing again, he finds a job helping out at a bodega and becomes involved with both its owner and her friend, two women left behind by men like Andres. ”What may start out as a message movie . . . becomes a charming, subtle romantic triangle,“ Turner wrote. Understated and poignant, ”Northless“ was a major award-winner at Spain’s San Sebastian International Film Festival. (2009, Mexico/Spain, 93 minutes.)
