How can anyone do a movie with such awful, negative, monstrous message?
13 January 2012 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I couldn't believe it, so I eat it all up till the end and yes, that's the message. So, the story go something like this: If you're a single, poor mother with problems and a kid, your only choice, the only thing that can fix your life and your son's life is to find a marriage of rich people who want to take it out from you, because, you know, the only thing that matters is money, so, as the real value of the people is about how rich they are -because, remember, the only thing that matters is money and the life that money can buy you-, no low-social-economical-extraction people can fight or find any solution, that means, if you're poor, you lose, and the rich people are the best, because -please don't forget this-, money is the only issue that matters. C'mon! What's the problem with you, Famke! Better keep acting -or whatever. Gee!
