Nueba Yol ★★ 1995

Balbuena (Marti) is a recent widower with nothing much to look forward to in his native Dominican Republic, so he's easily persuaded by fast-talking friend Fellito (Carbonell) into immigrating to New York (illegally). He has trouble finding any kind of work, is confused and intimidated by the city, and finds himself at odds with more acclimated immigrants from his homeland. Spanish with subtitles. 105m/C VHS . Luisito Marti, Caridad Ravelo, Raul Carbonell, Joel Garcia; D: Angel Muniz; W: Angel Muniz; C: Christopher Norr.
