only good intentions
29 January 2004 | by (seville) – See all my reviews

Its a simple story of love and abandon. Antonio Resines plays a guy who is a winner in life but a loser in love, maribel verdu is an outsider and she comes to his life. This movie has the same vicious than much of spanish dramas, not too much action, very boring sometimes, and a lot of argues between the characters. The performance of maribel verdu is excellent but the performance of Antonio Resines is awful. There's some few moments where you get interested on what's going on, but there's much more moments when nothing happens. There's nothing new in the plot, you can find a lot of movies like this one, and with better results.
