Could have been excellent!
13 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I wanted to see this film since 2001, when I read it was nominated to the Goya (Spanish Oscar) as best Spanish film of the year. Generally speaking, I think the film delivers and it has two interesting subplots. A great detail is that even though it takes place at a somber area of Madrid, it never makes you feel bad or depressed; they've made good use of the cameras and the lights; the sawing area is well conceived. In general, the direction was outstanding. Unfortunately the story shows some weaknesses, some people are overexposed without being important and some others would need a couple of extra screen minutes/seconds to be more functional. It was a shame the main plot itself ends up being kind of poor and not really original when you recall it... I gave it a 7/10
