Storyline

Ana is a rich, repressed housewife. Much to her annoyance, her husband rents out their garden to a soap-opera production, and goes away on a business trip. In her dull solitude, Ana follows the shooting from her window, and soon becomes just as engrossed in the soap-opera as her two maids. When accidentally mistaken for an actress, she ends up being cast for a role -to the great dismay of the other actresses and her maids. The set soon becomes dominated by gossiping, intrigues and blackmail, while the boundary between her real world and the make believe world of soap-operas begins to blur. Ana finds herself entangled in a real life soap-opera all of her own when she tries to get everything back to normal before her husbands comes home. Written by Alvaro Velarde

three chickens is the best part!
14 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

I am surprised that this movie only has 4 comments, so i am here to add another one.

The funniest part of this movie is about the "three chickens". Those lines are well written. The actors executed them very well. They totally made me laugh. That girl who wears a neck protection looks like Tina Fey. Those two maids are really good, one acts very silly. One acts so cold hearted.

This whole movie has an out of this world feeling. It is as if you are trapped in a certain period of time. Everything happens around that big mansion.
