Just correct feminist movie...
10 April 2009 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

In this movie something happens that also occurred in Urbizu's previous film, of similar title and identical subject, "Cómo ser mujer y no morir en el intento" (How to be a woman and not die trying) and is that the same message that carries the film (clearly feminist) is introduced in a forced and not very real way, making the characters that surround the main protagonist (in both movies Carmen Maura) simple archetypes based in clichés, being the main character the center of the Universe.

All this in a film that pretends to invite to think makes that what we're being told we don't believe it at all. On the other side, and also like in the previous film, there are enough strictly cinematic elements to make the movie interesting; the subtext supposedly is about a successful woman in spite of all the difficulties she goes through, but all this isn't portrait very good.

The movie is almost saved by the actors. Maura, Antonio Resines, Fernando Valverde and Irene Bau are excellent. 6 out of 10.
