Storyline

Two Argentine sisters, Memé and Aneta, lose their mother in a car crash. Memé, the elder, is also left lame with one badly scarred leg. The orphaned girls go to Uruguay to stay with their aunts. The sisters often bicker, but they are actually very close. Memé flirts but has no luck with boys because of her injury... On their own now, Memé works as a waitress where she gets to know Andy. Returning to Montevideo, they meet Dolores, a friend of their late mother. Memé's affair with a man complicates her relationship with her sister. Then Andy invites the pair to his seaside retreat, a lighthouse... Written by David Carless

Without light
8 November 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

The movie is a mess. Neither the good cast and the good intentions can save the weak story, and the sometimes confusing flashbacks. Cheap philosophy, People with no reasons to live, stereotypes, and some nice landscapes, who really need it? Characters without a story. 4/10.
