Great film!
28 February 2003 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is so sweet!

When I watched this film it really brought me back to my childhood times. How I tell lies to scare my little brother was almost identical to what Juan did to Javi. And how Javi believed them all!

Javi was so sweet, and the acting by the little kids were great. The way that Javi and Carlos were disappointed at not seeing the girl's private part was so greatly acted. In addition, the sadness when Carlos lost his mother was almost genuine.

It was so interesting to see the world through a child's eye. Everything became so simple and yet so mysterious. I liked this film a lot and I would recommend it to others.
