Otilia is a woman with body of temptation but with face of repentance, that discovers in sex an escape and a way of revenge. Rotberg after Intimidad and Angel of Fire, decides to film this film under the auspice of the Sundance, the quite good result, probably not at the level of its previous works, although it is possible to mention that apparently the edition that was exhibited is not the cut of the director, reason why the own Dana sent a letter explaining it. The performances of all are excellent, and although it is a drama has many humorous scenes, is narrated on the basis of passages, I suppose, like the original novel. Not the better film of Rotberg, I love her previous work.
