By far the best movie I've seen in a long time. It gave me the definite urge to scream at everybody in the movie theater to leave so I can be all alone and feel this movie at the intensity it deserves. A gripping story, played with passion by Penelope Cruz. If you've ever been in love you must see this movie. I fell in love with it.
The story is entirely simple: a man falls in love with an Albanian girl, ugly, entirely the opposite of his beautiful middle class perfect wife. The love story unfolds in a very realistic manner, with close ups of earth-moving love making; blood, sweat and tears included.
The perspective is rough, but extremely sensual. There are signs and lines in this movie that you will have flashbacks on for quite a while.
