Miguel, a young psychiatrist working in Madrid, learns that his wife has just dumped him for no one else than his own father while he's expecting his mother-in-law's visit, who's come to the city on a medical revision, and doesn't know anything about her daughter's affair; to make things worse, one of Miguel's deranged patients has just stolen his wallet. Going to his patient's home to retrieve his wallet he'll meet instead his spontaneous and outspoken hairdresser sister Jasmina, who's bound to change Miguel's ordered, upper-middle-class world for good.

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 .
