Quite a story!
23 July 2018 | by howard-21378See all my reviews

What looks at first like a very dated example of South American cinema, in fact turns out to be an intriguing film that packs a real punch. Although some of the acting unfortunately falls into the Latin American soap opera melodramatic category, and the production is obviously done on a shoestring, the script is pretty taught and well paced, and more than makes up for these shortcomings. The story of a illicit love affair is, of course, nothing new, but here it acquires another dimension which ought not to be revealed before seeing. Add a truly knockout ending and you've got a film that more than holds it own in a fairly crowded genre. Had the production been a bit more professional in feeling and a bit more money spent on it, it would have been quite outstanding instead of being just very good.
