Nice movie
7 January 2002 | by (Manresa, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

It's an original movie, possibly the best of Miguel Bardem: Lola is a girl who was abandoned in a convent because she was "the ugliest woman in the world"; eighteen years later, a professor of university tries an experiment with her, she becomes "the most beautiful woman in the world" and she starts to kill all the Miss Spain, angry with the beauty.

The story happens into a future republican Spain (republican Spain? Really future!), the policemen are stupid (in future, too?) and the movie doesn't lose a little sense of humor, it has a moral and a nice final like a fairy tale.

The lead actress, Elia Galera, maybe needs a little more of experience in acting, but her beauty and style are appropiate for her character.
