This is an amazing movie. It's faithful to Rudolfo Anaya's story of a boy growing up in a small town in northern New Mexico in the 1940's. The actors looked absolutely right for their parts (and they can act, too!). I don't know if I'd take a child under the age of 10 or 11: it's a thoughtful film, and it's got intelligent writing in place of special effects. It captures what it's like to be a seven or eight year old child, whatever your sex, race or background: the experiences of growing up, making friends, and facing the terrors that all children face are universal. And I, a college-educated, older adult felt a thrill of superstitious horror at the sight of . . . I can't describe the incidents or plot and do them justice. It's a beautiful film and a moving one. I live in New Mexico (moved here from Seattle), and for me, Bless Me, Ultima explains New Mexico. The state's nickname, "The Land of Enchantment" isn't just a silly advertising gimmick.

I like the act that they didnt try to translate all the little remarks and endearments into English..it kept the presentation clean...Fantastic acting by Ms Colon as Ultma
But really..it is winter here...do the theaters have to be below freezin.. Makes the experience just uncomfortable
