Subtle as a Serpent. (Harmless as a dove? I don't think so)
1 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And the bite is memorable.

I've been somewhat ... reluctant about long atmospheric mood setting shots where the fast-forward button becomes irresistible. The thing with this movie is that if you -like me- become fascinated at the beginning it's impossible to fast-forward anything as "indulgent" as it may seem, everything is directly (not even poetically) related to the movie, so much detail and so underplayed like our everyday lives.. Except it looks so pretty, and it all just hits you like a ton of bricks.

I'm not completely sure about the absolute need to know Spanish in order to enjoy this film, because the acting is superb. You could almost follow the movie by watching the expressions and body language.
