Awesome movie depicting the intricacies of human relations
16 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Extremely well made drama where different shades of human relations are portrayed beautifully.

The acting is wonderful and every actor meets demand of their character

  • especially Paulina Gaitan portraying Esmiralda and the child actor
portraying Lina. The transition of emotions in Esmiralda, specifically when she gives her box to Augusto, and goes to meet Lina, was really wonderful and made me cry. Also, Fernando Luján does extremely well capturing the repentant father as the character of Augosto. Carmelo Gómez gives a solid performance as Iván(a troubled father and husband). Other performances are good.

The movie does not focus much on sharp dialogs, rather uses the expressions of the actors to capture the drama. The characters belong to modern society, and suffer from the ill-effects of isolated existence. The movie centers on relations between a couple, a father-daughter, and two sisters. It starts with a slow pace and melancholy mood, and gradually picks up the pace. Overall, the film ends with a positive note, where the characters realize the value of human relations.

The cinematography is top notch and the background music is superb. The use of sepia, occasional silence, reiterating the same incident form different perspectives, rhythmic variation in the background music – captures the emotions and the transitions of emotions beautifully.

Overall a breathtaking, feel-good film.
