How About an American Remake?
13 October 2003 | by DarguzSee all my reviews

I loved this movie. Maria Rojo as Esmeralda is delightfully sweet, and absolutely beautiful. The humor is top-notch; I especially liked how the inspector and others in the police station appeared in the scenes as Esmeralda was describing them.

Esmeralda is light, sweet, beautiful and funny, and she totally fills the movie with those qualities.

I highly recommend this movie.
