This movie was nominated to the Best Foreign Film Oscar alongside Cinema Paradiso. It is a different kind of movie, yet deserving of that honor. This movie showcases Puerto Rican Film, by presenting performances by actors that are mostly known for TV work that show their range.

I would call it the antithesis of a "coming of age" film. It presents in Santiago, the main character, how life can begin again at any age.
