Latino Film Festival. Ander.

Went down to San Diego to the Latino Film Festival for my Chicano Arts class at CSUSM and saw the film Ander. The film was basically about a middle aged farmer named Ander who sprains his ankle and begins to fall for the new worker (Jose).
The film did a good job with the silent moments in the film. For example, when working on the farm Ander would often retreat to a peaceful location on the hilltop overlooking the beautiful scenery. These moments really helped the audience feel the tranquility that Ander felt.
Overall I would rate this movie a 6.5/10. While the acting was good and it was filmed well the love story was not very gripping and the length of the film dragged on a bit long.
