I was surprised to see the low rates this movie has received until now and I have decided to do a little justice to this movie by posting a positive comment. The movie is a dark comedy with many funny moments. As you could see above, it's about a very cautious mother-in-law watching her son-in-law very closely, in order not to cheat on her daughter. This exaggerated caution is not caused by a great love for her daughter (for whose happiness she's not very concerned) but rather because of the awful headaches she has (caused by her 6th sense of detecting the "cheating of a man"). The mother-in-law is played very well by Carmen Maura - maybe you have seen her playing also in some of the movies of Pedro Almodovar (like "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and "Volver"). I have appreciated the performances of all the other actors. It's a non-pretentious movie (nothing profound is said here) but for a comedy it's OK and a good option for spending an evening on the couch (especially if outside is cold and raining).
