A bus driver George Lennox meets Carla, a Nicaraguan exile living a precarious, profoundly sad life in Glasgow. Her back is scarred, her boyfriend missing, her family dispersed; she’s suicidal. George takes her to Nicaragua to find out what has happened to them and to help her face her past. Once home, Carla’s nightmarish memories take over, and Carla and George are thrown into the thick of the US war against the Sandinistas. A mystery develops over where Carla’s boyfriend is, and the key to his whereabouts may be Carla’s friend Bradley, a bitter American aid worker. She finds her family, the Contras attack, and she and the Scot face their choices.
Plot: A Glasgow man visits war-torn Nicaragua with a refugee tormented by her memories.

Beautiful! sensitive. human. sad! realistic. touching.
A very beautiful and touching movie. Shows characters in a very sensitive way. A realistic film about people and the effect of terrible traumas (war) on them. It felt very sad. The movie really moved me what doesn’t usually happen. Very recommended.
Wonderfully human drama for realists
“Carla’s Song” tells of a quixotic Glasgow bus driver (Carlyle) who befriends a troubled Nicaraguan refugee (Cabezas) and embarks upon an odyssey in which she must stare down the demons of her past. A gritty, visceral, and very human cross-culture drama, “Carla’s Song” builds depth into its characters and realism into the film as it explores Carla’s past through the ravages of Nicaragua’s civil war (Circa 1978ish) searching for the resolution she so desperately needs. An excellent watch for realists into foreign films. (B+)
NOTE: The DVD I watched has no CC and only a part of the Spanish language dialogue was subtitled which, combined with accents, dialects, and slang in both Scotland and Nicaragua, made for language problems which interfered with the enjoyment of the film.
