A (ignored?) masterpiece
19 March 2001 | by Dr. No-7See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival and it blew me away. The story was greatly told, photographed and performed. I was really moved by the story of this three lost souls in modern Madrid. Najwa Nimri steals the show as Lucia, but Juan Diego Botto and Gustavo Salmeron are great too. I truly didn't expect it to be this good. This is really Calparsoro's best movie since Salto al vacio and is even better than that one too. In time, it has become one of my favourites. It hasn't been commercially screened in Argentina, but it should. A must see. If you have the chance, don't miss it. You'll want to see it again. I did.
