Goofs

In the last scenes, Mao shows a tattoo on his chest and talks about it with almost religious fervor, so he has the tattoo from some time ago. However, Mao was previously seen naked to the waist (while he was training) and he had no tattoo on his chest. See more »

A great Spanish film about the important things of life
7 August 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This film contains more of the real Spain than any other that I've seen. Funny, lovely, sweet and about real life. Best film to remember your country and the important things of life when you're away. Fantastic script, but gonna be really difficult to translate... If at any point you can understand this film in Spanish, you won't need to pass any real language test. Actors do a superb job as well. Photography shows the Barcelona out of design made of the small warm and sweet feelings. Maybe you won't experience that when you will visit the city or Spain but that's what make a difference...And I hope we won't loose it...Enjoy it!
