We actually had the choice between Deficit by Bernal and this movie on Spanish movie festival in KIev. I'm so glad we finally went for this one. Though I have never seen or heard of these actors they play brilliantly. The tragedy of usual lives, relationship bordering on friendship and love, loneliness, family ties and moral obligations - the movie manages to cover so much problems in such short timing. And of course the soundtrack, which I still hope to get somewhere, perfectly matches the action on the screen and sets just the right tone and mood to every scene. Being a tragic and sad movie it still has a very good sense of humor. Highly recommend this movie.
