Trivia

Bernardo's emotional final scene with his grandmother was caught in the first take. Director Miguel Albaledejo asked his young actor David Castille to do a second take because a fly was buzzing around in the background but Castille refused as he was so emotionally drained by the scene. The fly was removed digitally. See more »

finaly gays like myself in a movie and in a very good one too !
8 May 2004 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

if been waiting for years for a movie like this. it`s got comedy, it`s got tragedy, it`s showing real life and it all comes together in a movie fun, entertaining, educational and filled with love to detail.

you will laugh, you will cry and most important - you will think about what you`ve seen and heared.

i recognised myself a lot in this movies or saw "friend-alikes".

congratulations !

cant wait to buy the DVD and watch it again !

and know what !? - the child is the real star of this movie, knowing live better then the grownups.

some dialogs are born to be cult (example: the very last sceen of the movie)
