No Turning Back

Melodramatic and peppered with unbelievable coincidences, this 2001 feature by novice directors Jesus Nebot and Julia Montejo still has a certain charm. Pablo (Nebot), once an English teacher in Honduras, now labors in the Californian tomato fields as an illegal immigrant in order to provide for his precocious six-year-old daughter (a sitcom-ready Chelsea Rendon). While driving a borrowed truck, he hits and kills a child; panicked, he grabs his daughter and heads for Mexico in the company of an irritating guerrilla journalist (Lindsay Price) who wants to videotape his flight. TV veteran Nebot is nuanced and wise as the fugitive, but the overstuffed plot collapses under its own weight. In English. 99 min.
