Trivia

The film was originally envisioned by Ramon Jimeno as an inspiration based on a story he had read in a newspaper, about the removal of tenants in a house whose legal procedure had taken such a long time that by the time the authorities had to intervene they realized that the house no longer existed.

Excellent Movie
4 August 1999 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

An excellent movie with a realistic magical story and great humor. It could well be the representation of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez story. I really recommend watching this movie. Sergio Cabrera does ana amazing job directing it and the cast is very good.
