Mr Oristrell's film career as a screen writer, should have given him a better understanding of the material he decided to direct, but obviously he had no clue as to what a mess this film was going to be.
The story is absurd. It rings untrue from beginning to end. Everything is phoney. The characters are 1 dimensional and paper thin. The main conflict between Isabel and Mario, 20 years before was stupid. The character of Isabel is badly played by Ms. Forque, whose career is even more difficult to explain in the Spanish cinema. It's very difficult to think an acting teacher would resort to let her students emote in the way she lets them. It's a shame that Rosa Maria Sarda didn't consult her good friend Ventura Pons before she accepted her role in this film. This is a step backward for her in a thankless appearance. What about Jorge Sanz' yoga instructor? What does he add to the plot? All in all this is a very badly cooked paella. Let's hope Mr. Oristrell doesn't get another idea about directing his own material any time soon.
