This film is great
12 July 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in the Sarasota Film Festival. This film is great, the story itself its amazing. I know the boy that came out as Jorge (Imanol) he is a great actor. Everybody in the production made a great job. The movie at first it's going to make you laugh, but as the story evolves it's going to make you cry your eyes out. this is a most see movie. I know that its going to be premiered on the U.S. soon maybe even first than in mexico.
