Quotes

Caye: [subtitled version] Weird, isn't it? Nostalgia. It's not a bad thing in itself. It means you had good times and you miss them. Me, I don't ever feel nostalgic. Nothing worth missing has ever come my way. Talk about shitty.

All around crowd-pleaser
22 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Montreal ibero-Spanish film festival (Festivalissimo) and this won the Audience Prize, with reason. This Spanish treat deals with themes of family, love, self-perception, racist, the acceptance of some times harsh reality and the nurturing of dreams. This all takes place in a dim world of prostitution where humour is splashed by a friendly bunch of prostitutes in the hopes to accept their less than stellar role in society. Candela Peña is great in her role. Her character, Caye, is torn between many things and she is able to portray that delicate balance and captivate the audience, drawing them in like one of Caye's client.

The acting is good, but it is also based on a great script. It is at once witty, touching and revealing. We delve quite a bit into the prostitution world, but manage to stay mostly in the light side of it, while being able to imagine the darker aspects. The inner voyage, the search, the subterfuge and the constant questioning are all very well woven into the story and the ending leaves us on a high note, after so much intense moments.

The editing puts it all together and the original music makes us feel and think. A genuine crowd-pleaser. Go and enjoy!
