Wasted money and time.

This movie has been painful to watch. I like slow-paced cinema (like for example this year's Paterson), but watching Soy Nero I had very strong urge to speed up every other scene.

Characters were developed badly, there were no story behind them. Even the main protagonist which we follow for the whole movie hasn't really been presented to the audience in more profound way. Allwe get to know and it has been repeated several times without more development, is the fact that he wanted to get back his US citizenship and the only way to do it was through becoming Green card soldier.

Quite nice shooting was totally ruined by very bad editing. Transitions between scenes were disturbingly deficient and unexpected, and left watcher with the feeling that there was a missing plot.

There were two good things about this film, hence the two stars. Firstly the motive of prejudice and unsubstantiated use of force toward immigrants, but even here it was delivered shallowly and too straightforward. Secondly almost only funny scene in the film when protagonist's brother has showed round not-really-his villa. The dialog and visual comedy there was pretty good.
