easy-silly film
13 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being Spanish in a foreign country, sometimes I found myself excusing the Spanish cinema, as 'not everything is Almdovar', and invite people to watch other Spanish films. This is not the case, this is not the kind of film that I'd recommend.

This is one of the most boring films that I've seem in ages. The plot is nonsense, even when at the beginning seems to be different, the story development is ridiculous.

Ernesto and Héctor Alterio, saved the film, the actress, Leticia Dolera, who is coming from TV, is not at the same level and the main problem of this film is, the lack of supporting actors. It seems too much responsibility for the three of then to hold the interest in the story and whether she plays twins, and we could count it as four, both sisters are the same, there's no difference in their characters at all.

Concerning supporting actors, we can underline Maria Isbert and Maria Pujalte, but both of them are such a small interventions, that something is missing.

6 out of 10 for father and son, 2 out of 10 for the twins. 4 out of 10 for the film. Spanish cinema is not all Almodovar, but I also hope that they haven't turn it into that kind of easy-silly films.
