Haitian immigrant tries to deal with what life is throwing at him as he looks to deal with his job in demolition, the need for a bigger house and a family moving in directions that he is uncertain of.
Nicely acted film is look into a world that most of us are unfamiliar with. We do not see usually the Haitian immigrant experience on screen and as a result the discussions and monologs don’t come across as versions of things we’ve seen before. For an example a sequence in the second half where Xavier,Sr talks to his son about his experience coming to America really hit home.
While I do not have a great deal to say about the film, due in large part to it still replaying in my head, I really liked it and have no problem recommending it to anyone who wants to see a hidden gem at Tribeca.
