"Nueba Yol 1 and 3"
Directed by Angel Muniz
This two-pack includes the highest grossing film in
Dominican history and its charming sequel. Nueba Yol (Angel Muniz,
1995, 105 mins.) is a sweet-natured tale of triumph, disappointment, and
the American dream. When Balbuena (Luisito Marti) moves from Santo Domingo
to New York ("Nueba Yol" in Dominican slang) hoping to make a fortune, he
is in for a harsh disappointment, but finds the inner resources to succeed
and find love in this land of crime, betrayal and strict labor laws.
Nueba Yol 3 (Angel Muniz, 1997, 103 mins.) is the follow-up to the
original (director Muniz skipped Nueba Yol 2 in a sly critique of
sequels). Marti returns as the hard-working immigrant Balbuena, who must
try to circumvent new, tougher U.S. immigration laws in his bid to become
a citizen. Spanish with English subtitles. 212
