Finally, a flawed, human father portrayed well
1 September 2003 | by (Philadelphia Film Festival) – See all my reviews

Spanish film seems to be on a roll lately, and this one just adds to the wealth of creative output. In this film, the dad, a lawyer to sleazy and connected clients (with a battling wife who represents the poor), has to travel the club/drug scene to locate his missing 16-year-old daughter.

He finds the daughter, but a new search ensues, and while the dad lectures the daughter on lifestyle issues, his own past, business dealings and propensity to violence put the father-daughter relationship in a fascinating dynamic.

The lead actor (Juanjo Puigcorbé) is a treat, with a face that shows humor, irony, and world-weariness. He carries this film easily. The violence and events are realistic, and the climax is poignant and heart-rending.

Hopefully this will see a US distribution. Until then, search it out at a festival near you.
