This movie is a very good one here is the story of three different woman in three different time but all have a connection to each others the better segment is the one with Raquel Revuelta a great actress with a powerful performance by this time she was still very beautiful even she was in her 40s her real life mother the legendary actress Silvia Planas play her mother in the movie too, her segment is at the end of the colonial time in Cuba back in 1898 in this segment miss Revuelta all dress in white look impeccable she is perfect for the part i don't think she was ever better well maybe as Dona Barbara back in the mid seventies, the others segments are good but not as perfect as this one Eslinda Nunez play the lead in the second part no a great actress but was beautiful the last part was weak and very political
