Naian González Norvind,
This is a comedy about couples within the same family, striken by crisis, leading to the philosophical and practical question: is it worthwhile to stay together? Susana and Carlos have been married for ten years. He works all day to survive the economic crisis, and she leaves him. Her younger sister, Nora, films the separation for a school project, and tries to save her own relationship with Jorge, a young rock and roll musician. Even the children of Susana and Carlos are not spared the conflicts. And Adela, Susana's grandmother, finds love with Genaro, an antiques aficionado. The answers and conclusions in the film are fun, unpredictable, and very human. Written by

The film "Cilantro y Perejil" falls under the romantic comedy genre. The title of the film suggest the theme of the story so similar but yet so different. This is a comedy about couples and their definition of what love is and the believe that there is that right person just for you. We begin the story with an interview that Susana is having with Nora about what love is and what does a person feel when he or she sees their other half, for a school project that she is putting together. As Susana states all these things about what a person should feel, Nora asks her if she feels that for Carlos her husband. Susana Replies with a no. The story starts to develop when Susana divorces her husband Carlos. After the divorce they try to rebuild their own love life. They date different people through work, friends and a singles club that Nora sights them up for; to find out that they have nothing in common with the people they date. After all of that at the end they realize that they always had what they were looking for.
As the film develops it touches in many social issues throughout the documentary that Nora is filming for her school project or on the film itself. Family life is put to question and the problems that the children face after their parents split up. The complication of love and romance and how globalization has changed it is also one of the issues that are being address in the film. Over all the director did a great job on bringing the different issues together on the film. In combination with the smooth editing and the technique of a film within a film.
Bottom line is a great film to watch
