Outstanding story
17 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It has nothing to do with the fact that I am Spanish to rate this film this way. My dearest Señorita is probably one of the greatest Spanish films ever. And it is also one of the best performances of Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez, an honest actor, an actor who can deliver emotions on each frame. The director Jaime de Armiñan made a great job with this film packed of details. The ideas he came up with for this film are so clever. Details are most of the time what make a film really great. And details such as when Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez goes to the typical Hostel in Madrid and all you can hear from inside is some eggs being whisked...Seriously, I think this film makes Almodovar look cheap.
