ABSOLUTELY NOT a waste of time
25 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I agree with the previous comment but it is not only the presence of Leticia Bredice, who indeed is drop-dead gorgeous, that makes this movie so attractive. The Spanish actress Silke is divine too and with her androgynous appeal adds a very interesting contrast to Bredice's classical beauty. The scene in the bath tub is worth watching over and over. If you add the beautiful and colorful locations in Tenerife, lots of male and female skin and gifted actors like the unique Antonio Gasalla or Divina Gloria you have a light but really attractive comedy that beats most similar comedies made in (and not made in) Hollywood. Also appealing is the contrast between the Argentinian and Spanish accents (again the bath tub-scene!). All in all terribly underrated and full of surprises !!!
