Massiel at her best
29 June 2010 | by BardotsalvadorSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in a DVD my friend from Las Vegas Nevada a Massielista meaning a fan of Massiel like me sent it, the movie is a comedy Massiel play this girl from the wrong side of the track, she is well know all over the Spanish speaking world as a singer and sometime as a dramatic actress she did Cesar and Cleopatra and a play based in Bretcht and Weill music in the stage in Spain. both play with great acclaim but as a comedian I has never imagen Massiel and she is really good

and very funny , Veronica Forque one of Almodovar early star she did for him among others movies Kika is the lead in this movie and as always she is very good too sadly Massiel never did a movie again, she is back but only as a television panelist in some gossip show what a waste of talent Massiel please comeback
