When Ana married Felix, the leader of a rock band and son of a travel agent, she thought her life would be plenty of excitement and travels. Now, in her forties, she leads a monotonous life with her husband and her daughter, giving cooking lessons and taking French courses. But one day she receives an invitation to give a cooking course in Paris. Written by
Ana is a forty-year-old housewife that life a totally ordinary life with her husband. While young, she though she could do all she would, but reality is different, as she does nothing but giving cuisine lessons, learning French and taking care of her obsessive husband and her rebel sixteen-year-old daughter. But nobody knows that Ana has two lives: the boring real routine and another interesting one that only remains in her dreams. Unexpectedly, one day, she will be able to fulfill her dreams by traveling to Paris, where, who knows, dreams can become true. In fact it is just a romantic comedy but quite strange, as it mixes (clearly) reality and fiction, but it has no clear path, it goes from here to there but it is not able to explain everything correctly. While most of the film it is not clear, it is not boring and, despite being not good, it is more or less entertaining and keeps you on the screen without many yawns. Maybe the story is a little too unbelievable and it is impossible to take it seriously, but well, why not dream a little?
