This is the first movie that I see from Tristan Ulloa, whom I respect very much as an actor. I have not read Rocagliolo's book, which the film is adapted from. The movie is well directed and actors perform OK -this is Ulloa's core -but the plot is too tragic. Opens many stories at the same time, in the same family -and that could happen-, but trying to tell many topics the movie ends not telling a SINGLE one that is . Fidelity, sex, puberty, child molesting, cancer, are all topics intended to be told, but no one is finally developed.
I was very disappointed with the plot, but Ullos showed that he learned a lot of visual language from acting, so I hope next time he gets the right story to tell.
