An unexpected treat from another time
6 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Felix Herman knows how to tell a story. The actors tell a witty story of lust, ignorance and romance with an ample dose of traditional Latin American magical realism. Zoe Saldaña has been given the chance to carry the movie and she does so with a fearless energy that marks her as an actress who is comfortable in her skin and skillful in her craft. Freddy Beras Goico has the kind of genuine sharp humor that can't be faked; Veronica Lopez is wonderful embodying the kind of dramatic small mind everybody loves to hate. The Story takes you to a place where time stopped; you could easily be in the 1940s as you could be in the 21st century. The characters and the humor are timeless. It will be interesting to see this little known genre of film-making grow so in tune with the literature that comes out of Latin America.
