Partes Usadas
Directed by Aarón Fernández (Mexico, 2008)

Fourteen-year-old Iván and his uncle Jaime, a used car parts dealer, dream of a better life as immigrant workers in Chicago. When Jaime realizes that it will cost more than he expected to pay the “coyote” who will guide them across the border, he decides to initiate his nephew into the world of car part theft. Iván quickly learns his new trade and recruits his best friend, Efraín, to help. Everything seems to be going smoothly until Iván realizes that his uncle’s plans have changed. 95 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

Note: This film has not been rated. It does contain some violence.

Firmly grounded in Mexico City street realism yet steeped in the fluid rhythms and visually sensitive traditions of French cinema… — Robert Koehler, Variety
