Extremely Painful...and I have seen some bad movies...
6 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous review that this is very painful to watch. As a loyal Almodovar fan, I went to see this film because Cecilia Roth was in it as well as Gael Garcia Bernal who I'd seen in a couple of other films.

It was during the Miami Film Festival and Fito Paez happened to be in the audience that night. There was a huge Argentinian fan base watching that night.

What a horrible movie. My husband and I wanted to get up and leave but when we started looking around, the loyal fans gave us dirty looks and I did not want to be rude and interrupt anyone's viewing (the rows were very long and we were sitting right in the middle of our row).

This guy's idea of suspense music is a single high pitched piano note every 5 minutes (extremely annoying and it just didn't work). The story makes no sense and his attempt at creating a twist left you going "huh?".

Do not waste your time. If you want to see Cecilia Roth, get an Almodovar film and if you want to see Gael, get any other film he's been in.

PS: As soon as the movie ended, we left the theatre very very quickly.
