Lisa Loven Kongsli,
Gloria Cumplido (Paulina García) is a 58-year-old divorcée. She's generally friendly but deeply lonely. She does yoga. She goes to a dance club for older folks. She meets Rodolfo Fernández (Sergio Hernández) and immediately gets into a passionate sexual relationship. He refuses to let her meet his family. At her son's birthday dinner, he sneaks out without telling her. She is devastated and breaks up with him. She's diagnosed with glaucoma. She eventually tries again with Rodolfo but this time, he walks out on her at a restaurant while on vacation.
The most compelling aspect of this movie is that old people get naked and have single people sex. I guess that's unusual in the movie world. Gloria has a compelling long road of self discovery in this movie. Paulina García plays it a little too understated for my taste. I would have liked her to be more explosive and more urgent. The movie is generally slow and quiet. There are some sly humor but nothing that is laugh worthy. Also what's the deal with Rodolfo? It's the most confounding weird idiocy that he keeps walking out on her. If I was her, I would be wondering if he's delirious or suffered a head injury. I just don't get Rodolfo.
