Goofs

In the Italian original version, almost all Spanish characters (flamenco dancers), when speaking in Spanish, make a lot of mistakes, showing clearly that they are not at all native speakers (although they are supposed not to speak Italian either). The accent is more or less correct, but it all sounds strange and disturbing to a native speaker. See more »

Why I like foreign movies
17 April 1999 | by (Guatemala, Guatemala) – See all my reviews

Thus movie is a very light romantic comedy, that has a good story. It transports you to that little town and even helps you relate with every character in the movie. I just loved it. It also shows how even a small thing ( the broken sign) can affect the lives of so many people. US movies don't take risks and are very shallow
