As irregular as the film might be, it is sure that anyone who watches "Rencor" will be highly impressed by Lolita Flores' performance in it. Chelo Zamora is a extremely charismatic character, and Lolita takes advantage from the excellent lines written by Miguel Albaladejo. It is a shame, however, that the storyline is often iffy and that Lolita's leading man, Jorge Perugorría, is a little miscast.
I hope Lolita keeps getting meaty film roles in the future, although she seems more TV-oriented nowadays. Writer-Director Miguel Albaladejo is one to follow, since he manages to present a different kind of comedy in Spanish cinema, as in "El cielo abierto" or "Cachorro".
Overall rating: 7.
