It's a musical, and it's not. It's not a mindless Hollywood musical with a shallow script. The music in the film seems to blend in a natural way with the story. There are a lot of criticism towards the evils of today's empty and stupid mass entertainment, and religious bigotry. The way the camera moves gives this film a sense of unreality that matches the craziness of the whole story. Oreiro was excellent as well the girl in young Natalia's role, also Mirella Pascual is also quite good in her role of a typically Uruguayan mother. It's hard to understand why a commentator so vehemently ask prospective viewers, to avoid this film. I definitely, very much recommended this unassuming and yet quite refreshing Uruguayan film.
