Luppi is one of the best actors that I know and he has demonstrated too he is a good director of actors, the whole performances in the film are extraordinary. I think the film has had the shortage of money, specially with the editing however the encourage of the story overcomes these lacks. Some journalists in Spain have talked about the movie in a moralist and bad way, I assure is cause they have seen their selves in front of a mirror, their changes, how their trajectories have turned. The scriptwriter is a young woman(Susana Hornos) who has shown with bravery and honesty the lost of the illusion but the need to get on. She performs a sweet-delicate-tragic woman, if she keeps on acting and writing we shall enjoy with an extraordinary talent in front of us. I hope to see the tandem Luppi-Hornos working together again soon.
