A touching story
27 September 2002 | by (Mexico City, Mexico) – See all my reviews

A touching movie in which the character of Esperanza blends with Katy Jurado, producing such an effect in Jorge, played by Imanol, that changes his life. Both performances are remarkable, as well as the homage payed to a great actress. The photography is great, the music beautiful and the art work excellent. Though it could be shorter.
