A Story about Love, life and friendship
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It had its funny moments what with esperanza being a woman of some restraint, and Ramon being a giant pervert. There friendship is epic, all because you can see the true love there. It is moving, and I loved watching it. maybe they could have gone into a more detailed view on the lives of the other supporting characters, but what we saw of them was good. Sad yet loving, this movie has it all!

I do recommend this film if you are looking for something with love and a little humor.This is probably a good view into the world around us, and how different it is.It might help you appreciate what you have and give you a look into what you don't want to have!
