Sensitive director Patricia Riggen has, in LA MISMA LUNA (UNDER THE SAME MOON), succeeded in creating a story about the travails of the illegal immigrants from Mexico that serves as a reminder to all of us that one of the... Full review

One can never accuse this film of reaching classic heights, but one can truly say it tries very hard, a little too hard at times. Throughout the film, there are moments that transcend its obvious attempts to manipulate its audience,... Full review
Do not let the idea of illegal immigration keep you from this film. If you are strongly against illegal immigration, I still recommend watching the film. Overall, it was done extremely well. So even if you are against the characters... Full review

I just saw this movie through the Los Angeles KCET Movies Series and it was absolutely fantastic! While the movie does contain a subtle political message, it is not meant to sway the audience in the illegal immigration debate. The... Full review

Rosarios determination and resilience ground the moral design of Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna ). In another movie, such faith might seem admirable or ridiculous, a sustaining fiction or damaging delusion. ... Full Review

PopMatters
In her debut feature, director Patricia Riggen pits her hero against all the familiar signposts of patriarchal authoritylaw enforcement, white people, and in this case, common sensein an attempt to solicit compassion she doesnt have to work for. Even at this most charming juncture, the film cannot help its more self-aggrandizing tendencies. ... Full Review

Orlando Sentinel
The movie has a few too many unsympathetic "gringos," venal employers, scary Border Patrol agents and the like. La Misma Luna is an emotional and entertaining road picture about a little boy who crosses the Mexican border into the U.S. on a quest to find his mom. ... Full Review

treating nearly all the Caucasian characters as horrible WASPy monsters who delight in tormenting their Mexican workers....."Moon" sermonizes on the issue by including bizarre soundtrack cuts....Moon" is a shamelessly sentimental tale of motherly love, yet Riggen isn't an assertive enough filmmaker to earn sniffles and smiles..... ...

Cinema Blend
Filmed in various Mexican locations, La Misma Luna has a good feel for its geography and characters, aided greatly by an able and sympathetic cast of well-known Mexican actors. Its not the most subtle character transition, but Derbezs finely tuned sarcasm helps temper the sentimentality that threatens to take over from time to time. ... Full Review
