Not quite there...

Attempting to set up a South American mixture of Kaurismäki and Almodovar, Martín Rejtman does not succeed.

Though I certainly laughed my way through some quite humorous moments, especially during the first half hour, the script is neither enough 'on the edge' to be absurd, nor is it subtle enough to deliver a story of much interest.

Having said that, most characters are very well casted, and the acting is brilliant at times.

Don't avoid this film for any price, but don't expect even half a masterpiece.
