A Superb Film with an Unexpected End!...
6 December 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

An interesting film with an unexpected end... Contains, love scenes, drama, mystery and a great story that covers a wide spectrum of psychological performances, inside scenes full of emotion with Jorge (Arturo De Córdova) that fell in love with Mónica (Rosita Quintana), passion developed in front of their jealousy antagonist, Magdalena (María Douglas). Again, a superb performance of Arturo De Córdova with extended and extraordinary dialogues that shows really a contemporary gentleman inside intelligent love relationships that nowadays, one can hardly find. It's a worthwhile film, a must for the Arturo De Córdova's fan!...Highly recommended... Good Luck!
