Subtly powerful film that everyone should see
Having heard that this film won at Toronto, I was anxious to see it. Although it has not yet been widely released, I was fortunate to attend at a recent sneak preview and found it to be incredibly refreshing and subtly powerful. Stylistically, newcomer director Alejandro Monteverde does a superb job pacing the story — combining just the right amounts of character, humor, and mystery into a package that satisfies on multiple levels — intellectually, visually, emotionally, symbolically, etc. The photography — shot in and around the streets of Manhattan and Long Island — is top notch, reminding me of James Crabe’s amazing cinematography along the streets of Philadelphia in Rocky (1977)….and the editing, relying heavily on jump cuts, keeps the story moving along in multiple time frames to great effect.
The actors all shine in their roles, particularly Mexican superstar Eduardo Verástegui and Tammy Blanchard, who portray their particularly complex relationship — between a cook and a waitress in a Mexican restaurant — with finesse. Additionally, the filmmakers do an excellent job presenting Hispanic culture in a manner that shatters the ridiculous stereotypes that are often presented in mainstream television and film. The scenes taking place at the cook’s Hispanic parents’ house are particularly funny, charming, and poignant. Also, the film portrays some very powerful emotional moments that have tremendous staying power long after leaving the theater.
In short, this is subtly powerful film that everyone should see.

I really enjoyed this film! As a Film Critic, I feel that for Monteverde’s first feature film, Bella was phenomenal. It moved me! I laughed, I cried, I was intrigued the whole 90min. The casting was brilliant. I was very impressed by both Eduardo Verastegui and Tammy Blanchard. They played very real and powerful characters. The ending was a surprise that left me feeling good- it wasn’t expected at all! Coming home after viewing the film in Toronto, I was left contemplating the movie and the subtle messages throughout. The Cinematography was ingenious. I recommend this move to people of all walks of life- It was a great film!
