This movie was a risk. But worth taking! I have never expected to see such a venturesome national picture in Argentinian cinemas. Technically, the film has a Hollywood look. Especially lightning deserves appreciation. Oreiro once again proves that she is more than just a pretty face. Make-up required to bring her villain to life makes Natalia unrecognizable. Mike Amigorena and Leonor Courtoisie are absolutely marvelous. Rossy de Palma's and Jeannette Rodríguez's appearances are also worth mentioning. Ale Sergi's songs, such as "El perfume del amor" ("The Fragrance of Love") and "Papá" ("Dad"), are plainly enchanting. The story seems to be simple, but in fact it is not. The movie ridicules the most irrational provincial principles. It contains many references to the '80s. "Miss Tacuarembó" is not recommended for close-minded and homophobic people. If you're not so, you will love it!
