Trivia

Julio Medem wrote the part of Alba for Elena Anaya. When the actress accepted the role, she and Medem went to Russia to cast the perfect Dasha. After seeing a lot of actresses and models, they found the perfect one, but the night before this woman was to fly to Spain to start rehearsals, her husband read the screenplay and forbade her to play the role which involved nudity and lesbian lovemaking scenes. However, after returning from Russia dejected, Medem and Anaya found Russian-born model Natasha Yarovenko while casting in Spain, specifically in Barcelona, who accepted the role. See more »

Goofs

In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom. See more »

Quotes

Alba: So... what was your name?
Natasha: I told you twice already.
Alba: Maybe on the third time I get it.
Natasha: It's Natasha.
Alba: Natasha? Is that the name you said earlier?
Natasha: You're not saying it right. It's pronounced nah-tat-sha. "Sha".
Alba: Sha?
Natasha: Sha. And you are Alba which is Spanish for dawn.
Alba: That's my unique moment.

Nothing special, yet beautiful and touching
12 December 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

There is no real reason why I should like this film. There are literally hundreds of films like this. Two people who've never met each other before fall in love over night and it's all because of coincidental circumstances. We've seen it before, a thousand times.

Despite this, I enjoyed this film. The reason it works so well is simply because the main characters have true chemistry. You really believe that they are in love with each other, and since this is the whole premise of the film, combined with perfect casting and acting, it feels real. The actors aren't acting, they ARE the characters.

I've never been that much for romantic/erotic dramas like this. I have always tried to convince myself that they are boring and pointless. But over the years I've discovered that I love these kind of films. I will never confess it to my friends, though.

There is a lot of dialogue in this film, but it's rarely dull, and once again it's because of the chemistry between the characters. That chemistry is the whole film, and it makes up for the random cuts and unnecessary transitions that are placed throughout the film.

There is also a certain pattern in the film ("talk, sex scene, talk, sex scene, talk...", and so it goes), but it never occurred to me until a few days after I had seen the film. Whether it's good or bad, I don't know. It doesn't affect my opinion regarding this movie anyway.

If you enjoy laying on your couch on a stormy autumn day and watch romantic dramas, then this movie is pretty good. If you're not a fan of these kind of films, I'd still say give it a chance.
