Ehh....keep trying...
14 September 2009 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I love dramas but Las viudas de los jueves is a very BORING film. I mean, you know how it's gonna end since the beginning, completely predictable and bad acted. What happened with the score, Roque? It appeared in the most particular moments and then disappeared, without any sense.

We can give this production a good mark actually, and I must recognize that. Filming places, cameras, light and makeup were perfect.

Another thing you have to know is that this movie is a drama, there is no suspense, you just want the characters to die and finish the story once for all.

I found very disturbing the constantly repeated word "pija" in a drama of this characteristics. I mean, you can add what you want in a movie, but why so many times? Teens were good, but the girl was a bit annoying. What more I dislike was the lack of action, but I am not talking about cars exploding or something like that, I mean, It was too much quietness and slowness and sadness and depression and at the end It becomes foul plus the message that this movie gives you at the final scene. What was that? What were you thinking Claudia when you wrote that ending so predictable?

I give it a 6, just because I liked Ronnie and Mavi's family and the fact that they were normal people (you will know what happens then). Well, one more movie for the Argentinian market. Hope people liked more than me.

Please, do not make more movies about crisis and recession. I really do not want to remember that. Not Menem, please.
