I just read the previous review (the only one) and feel devastated, because mine will be the opposite to that one. Two worlds apart, two points of view totally different.
I rented this movie out of nostalgia for the Catalán language, since living in Argentina there's no way I could listen to this language at any place (I listen to Catalunya radio on the Internet, but an actual living person speaking Catalán..., forget it!).
After a couple of minutes watching this film I noticed something vaguely familiar with it... Of course! I had rented this film a while back and obviously for the same reason!!!
And remembering more clearly now, for the same reason I stopped watching it after 15 or 20 minutes.
It's unbearable. It's unwatchable. It's worse than hitting your own mother.
The script lacks whatsoever redeeming qualities it could have had, it's a total loss.
The dialogs are simplistic to the point of bordering on idiocy.
The protagonist must be the daughter of the producer, because I never saw an actress less charismatic than her in my whole life and I hope that after completing her part in this film she entered a convent (de clausura).
Even the robot in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" had more charm than this actress (and a better figure too). What else..., well, nothing actually. This film is hopeless.
