El Jardin del Eden


Time Out says

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.
