Movie Haiku:Mennonites in Northern Mexico speak German @ home & Spanish in town -- who knew? Johan (Cornelio Wall) creates an uproar by falling in love long after hes become a paterfamilias & community pillar. Excellent cinematography replaces dialogue for people whose culture is essentially non-verbal.
