The story revolves around some sort of teenage crazy love, and a very dramatic one. Sandra and David meet as kids and grow up together. While Sandra develops as a nice girl, David behavior is always at odds with the world, his unfriendly father, family, school, etc. They stay as friends until one day the affair takes a different dimension. Sandra soon discovers she is not exactly safe with David and, accepting his father suggestion, leaves for Dublin, where she intends to learn English. David follows her and, rebutted, is lost forever. It's a strange choice of film for a director who built a successful career doing some of the best Spanish comedies ever and has remained silent for a number of years. The script, based on a novel, never really gets as gutsy as it should considering the story. Clara Lago is really beautiful and sexy, but her counterpart, Alvaro Cervantes isn't as ominous and dangerous as the role would request. It's entertaining but never really goes as far as it should. As you would expect from a director as proficient as Gomez Pereira, all tech work is excellent.
