Romantic comedy with amusing moments , brief drama and a charming love story
21 December 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a plain and simple comedy with some diverting moments and other briefly dramatic ones . It takes place in Madrid , there lives Miguel (Sergi Mateu) , a young psychiatrist working at a Public Hospital , to be aware his spouse has just abandoned for no one else than his own friend . In the meantime , he's expecting his mother-in-law's (Maria Jose Alfonso) visit , who's come to the capital on a medical revision by an expert doctor (Emilio Gutierrez Caba) , and doesn't know anything about her daughter's affair . To make things worse at hospital , Miguel deals with a gallery of all nutty or mentally upsetting patients . When one of Miguel's deranged characters has just taken his wallet , then Miguel going to his patient's house to retrieve his wallet , there he'll meet instead his sister Jasmina (Mariola Fuentes) , a worker woman who cares his four brothers and grandparents (Victor Israel , Silvia Casanova) . As Jasmina helping Miguel to forget his recent loving failure . Both of whom fall in love because they have similar troubles . At the end Miguel has to choose between his old love , his wife Sara (Marcela Walerstein) and this lovely and good person , Jasmina.

This is a passable dramedy : a bit of drama plus witty comedy , in which is developed a yearn about a newly separated psychiatrist has just dumped by his wife and who becomes involved a love story with a good woman while his mother-in-love is suffering by cancer illness . The film is full of nice moments , tenderness , with an attractive relation between a upper-middle-class doctor and a lower-class hair-dresser . As being well developed an enjoyable relationship between a deranged doctor , unsettling for his separation , and a spontaneous and outspoken hairdresser of lower-class while falling in love with him too . Entertaining as well as tender screenplay by the same director and Elvira Lindo , the latter is a notorious Spanish writer and journalist , creator of the Spanish famous literature character Manolito Gafotas and she performed Manolito in a radio program for several years . Supporting cast is frankly nice such as Maria Jose Alfonso , Victor Israel , Geli Albadalejo , Marcela Walerstein , Silvia Casanova and brief appearance by writers as Elvira Lindo and Antonio Muñoz Molina . In addition , special mention to veteran Emilio Gutierrez Caba .

There stands out the colorful and atmospheric cinematography by Alfonso Sanz , a good cameraman who has photographed most films directed by Albadalejo , being and filmed in Madrid . Lively as well as adequate musical score by Lucio Godoy , a good professional who has composed soundtracks in a lot of successful movies such as ¨All about my mother¨, ¨Blackthorn¨, ¨Fin¨, ¨Amador¨. ¨Cuento Chino¨, ¨Mataharis¨ , ¨Melissa P¨ , among others . Besides , catching songs at the beginning and the end . The motion picture was professionally directed by Miguel Albadalejo , a fine craftsman expert on comedy and drama as proved in ¨Bear Club¨, ¨Volando Voy¨, ¨Rencor¨, ¨Ataque Verbal¨ , ¨The first life of my life¨, and this ¨Cielo Abierto¨, among others . Rating : 6 . Acceptable as well as agreeable comedy/drama . This a good-feeling movie filled with love , serenity , humor elements , drama and amusement . The flick will appeal to Spanish cinema buffs . Worthwhile seeing .
