From the 'feminist' director of the delightful Danzón, this is set in Tijuana and concerns the relationship between three disparate women, all in their way border-dwellers - Jane, an American going south, Liz her Spanish-American friend (who can't speak Spanish and is sister of blocked writer Frank who can), and Mexican Serena, a widow struggling to bring up her children alone. It's a discursive, rambling narrative, which may offer a good few insights into the difficulties of both racial identity and the building of alternate means of communication and support between women, but its message or meaning is a little obscure. Likeable and good-hearted none the less.
