Outstanding drama from Argentine household where dreams are place of escape
This drama goes beyond director Adrián Caetano's typical story telling and is focused on little girl Mariana struggling with her school and her parent's intention to live together again after many years of separation. When living conditions don't go the way this family has planned, Mariana tries to escape reality by inventing her alter ego. This, however, does not meet support neither from her parents nor her schoolteachers. Uruguayan actress Natalia Oreiro delivers exceptional performance in her dramatic portrayal of Cristina, mother who turns to alcohol when facing troubles. Her realistic performance is thrilling and proves her versatile acting ability. Caetano manages to tell the story in unusual way where dreams are mixed with reality and it is only up to the viewer to distinguish one from another.
