Storyline

Marga is having a streak of bad luck. Through her friendship with Rosa, she tries to regain her self-confidence, but love interests again create conflict. It is while developing a relationship with a handsome gay sculptor ten years her junior: Iñaqui, that she starts to improve. However, Marga and Iñaqui go beyond friendship, but are frustrated by their limitations. Ultimately, the two may have to settle for an "impossible" love relationship, as their unique best road to happiness. Written by ElianaG

nice film, touching and entertaining
16 April 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

We are told about how is Marga's life. From her adolescence until she finds a job and a very good-looking boyfriend. When everything seems perfect in her life, she has a car crash and her husband dies, in addition, she is pregnant and she is fired, all in the same day. Does she lose the will of living? Of course not, because the opposite to depression is not happiness but having will of living with passion; and that's what Marga tries to do, despite all the bad things than happen to her, she will fight to live with happiness and passion. With really good actors, that, maybe are not known out of Spain, the story results very touching and it catches you from the beginning. With a very open-minded way of dealing with problems about not-very-sure gay men and a fantastic soundtrack (mainly from Ray Heredia and Paco Ortega, two great flamenco singers) it is a film that will move you and, probable, will help you to deal with your everyday problems. The only bad aspect that I may point is the fact that she is very disgraced, it is hard to have so bad luck in everything as Marga suffers in the film; it can result a little unbelievable. Anyway it is very good. If you have tendency to cry, please, be sure you have something to dry your tears!
