Much more than soap opera!
21 August 2005 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I didn't see the movie expecting much, but I got really surprised. The cast is basically the same we see in Argentina in soap-operas, like Natalia, or "lunch-time" programs, like Guillermo. (The exception is the short appearance of "Wonderful Whoopi"). But I was very surprised because these actors put together, along with quite an original story, managed to make a very good movie.

With short spots of humor like any good American movie, and a unique style that was far away from our traditional kind of movies, a very sensitive approach on father-daughter relationships, having not the typical American "supercharacters" that can do anything, but real and vulnerable people, very well performed and not "overacted" like in "soaps", I must say that I was very surprised, for good, and enjoyed it very much. Very good for Natalia and Guillermo!
