Great surprise!!
21 November 2007 | by (Cuenca) – See all my reviews

Excellent film! I couldn't see it on theaters (my town is not exactly a cultural prodigy), so I've discovered it hiring a DVD, feeling curiosity because of the extraordinary critics of the cover. I didn't even know this film existed! I still don't believe this movie is Spanish, it's difficult to believe that we have a director who can shoot this way. I also find the film brave, smart and even didactic in the best sense of the word, I've learned things that almost make my head explode. I'm still impressed for this lesson of real cinema, editing and performances. The structure and construction of this intelligent script deserves 10 points (my English does not deserve more that 4).
