Storyline

Santiago wakes up like any other morning. He goes down to the kitchen and his whole family is waiting for him: it's his birthday. They all sing "Happy Birthday to You" and give him presents. But when he opens the present of his youngest son, he gets angry and says he doesn't like it. The boy starts crying and saying that he loves him, but Santiago answers that he doesn't believe him and he tells the boy that he is fired and that he wants another son, who is thinner, who doesn't need glasses and who resembles him more.

The Actor who acts as the painter who paint and the writer who writes
16 June 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

A watched this film for the first time a couple of years ago, in a film festival and a liked very much. A year ago I've the opportunity to buy it very chip in the supermarket. I enjoyed it again. At this time Elena Anaya has developed her career a lot, I've seen her in Rewind, Bendito Infierno, Blue room, Lucía and the sex and one or two more. Particularly in this film I liked her very natural performance, as well to the mayor part of the cast. She is a very beautiful and talented woman.

But what I really loved of the film was the actor who acts that acting. In art and literature, an of course in cinema, this issue has a long tradition. In painting is almost a genre, the studio of the painter. And of course there are lots of examples of the writer who is actually writing the story we are capable to see, thanks to his very actual writing. So, I believe the way the film approaches to the subject is very clever, and soft, I mean it doesn't need lot of "intellectual" dialogs like Allen's films. This one has many funny moments and significant ones. And the similarities that you can find with real life, and the acting world are really well presented.

Almost I enjoyed the performance of the "brother", I expect to see more of his acting.

I'd the opportunity to know a pair of films of this same director, and he is a really good one in the treating of people matters.
