Movie Info

Miguel is a grizzled, tequila swilling, human smuggler never far from death. Dodging helicopters, drug-traffickers and border patrol, he ferries desperate migrants across the river. His passengers think he is charmed because of his unblemished record, but the locals call him Maldito, because he is cursed, caught between the living and the dead. When a mysterious girl arrives claiming to be his daughter, and a local gangster demands he reveals his secret routes across the wilderness, Miguel must grapple with a past he cannot remember and a life littered with corpses.

Critic Reviews for The Boatman

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Though seemingly sympathetic to those crossing into this country, it displays little understanding of them as human beings, and its moral point is as muddy as the Rio Grande-cum-River Styx its hero crosses daily.

Exists in a world of its very own making, lending it a compellingly elusive sense of time and place.
