two classy women helping each other to find a new life
17 October 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Two upper middle class women from Buenas Aires are trapped in relationships that aren't working well. One is in an abusive relationship, the other is selfish towards her family. The catalyst for change is the murder of the abusive husband by his wife, Cecilia Roth's character. Her best friend, Ana Belen, tries to help her through this process, and by doing so has to tackle her own problems. Cecilia Roth manages to portray very well the shifts of emotion between ignorant bliss and fearfulness. Ana Belen, is truly amazing, as she balances on a the thin line between selfish stuck up diva, and self determined caring confident woman. There are some wonderful scenes shot in Guatamala as well as a nice stylish decor and wardrobe in Argentine. The story loses its intensity from time to time, and tends to become a bit too over-dramatic at times, but in general it is a very pleasant film to watch. The main attraction though are the two leading actresses who carry this story forward with such an amazing power that you won't want to miss one moment of their dialogs.
