A Spanish 500 Days of Summer mixed with a more urban and up to date You've Got Mail. I liked this film a lot. I watched on a whim, this being the first movie I've actually watched fully subtitled and I've got to say, personally it made the experience of the movie that much more enjoyable.(I think it added a feeling of being connected, seeing that there are people out there from a different culture feeling and hurting and living just like me) Now even though dialogue is primarily in Spanish, English songs are used and this also brought an even more familiar tone to the movie as a whole. I connected with both the main characters in the film. Their feelings of loneliness on the inside, yet, still going on with their day to day all while being mixed with their phobias, longings, quarks, and vulnerabilities. This movie works, it works on every cylinder. Beautifully shot and beautifully written.. Watching this will not be a waste of your time.
