Tenderness and cruelty in a perfect blend
9 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

A beautiful and tender movie where laugh and tear so wonderfully mix. I just recently saw it and, though made 10 years ago, it sounded so original and up-to-date: laughing at cruelty and feeling at the same time ashamed of yourself for doing it is so human...and sad. If you have a gentle soul and childhood traumas (and who doesn't ?), if you have ever been ashamed of your parents or of yourself (and who doesn't ?) I strongly recommend you to see this heart-breaking movie by Spanish director Santiago Lorenzo. The final scene is just superb and the little boy with his only word spoken at the end of the movie is incredibly touching. A real discovery for me and one of the best films I've seen. I will definitely try and see more movies by this director. Thank you!
