    Reader comments on Sudor Amargo

    Subject: 2 thumbs up
    Date: Jan 30, 2005
    Sender: Jorge VazquezPrevious | Next

    This movie is a good example of Puerto Rico's capacity to produce movies with real life content that goes direct to the heart with no need of sex scenes and forced profanity.

    I agree with Joshua Tancer's review regarding some over acting and poor shots, but we can't deny that the writer, director and the cast did an excellent job bringing to the screen our Puerto Rican idiosyncrasy.

    Ben out of the island for 8 years now, I start feeling home sick when heard our accent, people way of talking and word that reminded me my grandparents. In the other hand I really identified with the workers portrayed in the movie because unfortunately thatÔs Puerto RicoÔs realityĚ which now has been extended to the TV, where foreign companies are taking over our local programming and forcing their own culture. Something that we, Boricuas, find hard to swallow.

    Unfortunately we are currently facing the same luck here in the state, job wise, where Corporate American is shipping out White collar jobs to India and other countries, putting the middle class at risk.

    In summary, I just want to congratulate the actors and give them 2 thumbs up for such a wonderful job!
