A nice (nothing to do with Almodovar) story
2 February 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I liked this film very much. I agree with a previous comment that pointed out the technical mistakes of the director in some parts of the film. Certainly, it is not the best film ever, but it is good enough to spend 90 minutes with it. In fact, I think that one can omit the not-so-good-sometimes directing when considering the film as a whole. The story develops very smoothly, having some unexpected (but not out of the blue) turns. I really recommend to watch this film having a novel director/writer, not so well-known actors (with a couple of remarkable exceptions for the Spanish public such as Paredes), but a nice, well-written, script.
