Don't watch it if you came here for Ricardo Darin like me
When I watched 'The Secret in Their Eyes', I guess that was my first Argentinian movie and from that one I started liking Ricardo Darin very much. He is very powerful actor with great voice, facial expression and body language. I came to this title only because his name and after I'm done with the movie, I am truly disappointed. From first 10-20 min, I understood RD has hardly any cameo appearance in this movie. May be I was expecting another Amelie.
I watched the movie completely. Not because the movie was good or anything, just because it's a short one (I could have edited it 30-40 minutes less) and camera work was good. The lead actress is also good. Everything else sucks. You'll hardly ever feel for the characters. May be the directors tried to capture a snapshot of life, but without any concrete story and some incomplete side characters without any reason or significance, its very hard to get anything out of it.
They say, its a rom-com. I got little bit rom, though it was not believable. Com is virtually non-existent, there is no witty dialogue, no comic relief/scene.
This one is NOT a very good movie, but somehow you can drag it to the end I guess.
