For life watchers
23 January 2006 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I went to the movies in a cold, lonely afternoon, deep in my thoughts about my problems, nothing to do in the evening but thinking. I randomly chose this movie. And it was the perfect one. Definitely not a superb film, it fits though... perfect for moods like I had that day. Watching the development of some people's hard moments in their lives, from a teenager to an immigrant, a normal worker, a handicapped... can be an interesting activity for those days in blue. Watch it only if you like this kind of movies, otherwise you'll be bored from the first minute -action goes so slowly. Actors do pretty well. I had never seen Eman Xor Oña (Carlos) before and he deserves remarkable attention, his sight fills every scene. Leonor Watling (Laura) and Javier Camera (Mikel) do fine as well, although they don't appear as much as the main character, Nathalie Poza (Ana), who is nominated for the Goya (Spanish Academy awards) and plays a nice role. Through Ana's life you'll experience mother troubles and immigration problems in Madrid as well, with a very accurate approach to the real life and situations in such a big city.
