Good, but not great
27 June 2002 | by osundSee all my reviews

While Distinto Amanecer has many strong moments, the plot undercuts the movie in several places. The film starts out focusing on the story of a labor organizer who is trying to get ahold of an envelope with key documents in it. He meets a woman who is his old college friend, married to another college friend of his. Instead of merely focusing on the relationship of the three old friends, the film also throws in story lines on the relationship between the woman and her husband and the woman and her younger brother. These story lines only serve to distract from the main plot line.

The film is well shot and Palma and Armendariz act well, although some of the supporting players overact a bit. Worth seeing, certainly, but not an excellent film.
