A good movie
20 August 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a movie based on the performances of 2 outstanding Spanish actresses Carmen Maura and Veronica Forque playing 2 different sisters with two opposite ways of living. Director Manuel Iborra gives a very human and real view of family life and I'm sure many people will identified with the life of this 2 sisters. Just as in life there is comedy, drama, changes of opinion, romance but the plot is not contrived . Veronica Forque is so natural that you think she's not even performing , for me is one of the most outstanding Spanish performers . Carmen Maura do her excellent job as usual. The conflicts and joys of family life are present in this movie. Special guest appearances by Jorge Sanz and Alexis Valdés.
