Here's what the New York Times reviewer had to say about Bella:
It is not hard to see why “Bella,” a saccharine trifle directed by Alejandro Monteverde, won the People’s Choice Award at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival. This is a movie that wears its bleeding heart on its sleeve and loves its characters to distraction. Nothing — not even significant plot glitches and inconsistencies — is allowed to get in the way of its bear-hugging embrace of sweetness and light.

when life feels like its crushing down on you, when the future is dismal, there will always be someone or something that walks by with hope that reminds us all that life is beautiful . A little film called Bella reminds us of that.
ps : great soundtrack

I didn't expect it could be so good!

Beautifully moving pro-life movie. A rare gem, when the absolute majority of movies portray abortion, never the other side. Worth watching, even by the pro-abortion crowd—it doesn’t hurt to sometimes listen to the other side, just for a change. ;-)

Terrible corny movies that seemed to have been made to only focus on the main male and female actors. The story was tragic but for no good reason. Don't understand how it won so many awards . . .

This movie absolutely deserves all the awards it has printed on its cover! It was very real and heartwarming. I cried and the only movies I cry during are the ones about holocausts etc . . . Acting was good, characters weren't flat, the flashbacks and forward were artfully placed. It made me want to go out for tacos.

Not really my type of movie, I guess.

Beautiful movie, that should be watched by the whole family.

If you don't feel an emotional attachment to the characters, you need to check your pulse to see if you are still alive. A bonus is you get to see a little Hispanic-American culture, although the lessons are universal.
