Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Under the Same Moon is a heartfelt story of unquenchable hope, with the plight of illegal immigrants serving as an intriguing and timely backdrop. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: This largely Spanish-language film brings on the waterworks because its core story is undeniably affecting. The whole movie, however, would be more convincing if the elements around that vital core were more multidimensional and less contrived. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Oct 18, 2008

Fresh: It has the feel of truth and is a vivid reminder of the hell Mexicans put themselves through to live in the United States, even illegally. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna) is the nightmare Lou Dobbs has when he goes to sleep at night. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

A great contribution to Immigrant Cinema

This movie is a tad emotional, and while its plot is a little bit frustrating, it doesn't focus so much on the legalities of Immigration, choosing instead to focus on the family ties and relationships of this issue. A friend pointed out that the mom and the little boy are never in the same shot together, (except for a short dream sequence), and this underlines the theme of being alone in a strange, new country. An excellent addition to your digital library. Enjoy!


I think its a great movie! I really recomand it to everyone!
