Aleandro shines
13 September 2006 | by nicholas-salernoSee all my reviews

A retired schoolteacher (Norma Aleandro) takes part-time jobs to support her depressed, unemployed husband. When she meets a young actress (Natalia Oreiro) aspiring to better roles than those in soap operas, they form an immediate bond and embark on a more benign version of "Thelma and Louise." For part of the trip they are joined by a sympathetic hunk, played with smoldering sexuality by Leonardo Sbarglia. Their adventures on the road both amuse and enlighten--them and us too. The film's open-ended final scene allows viewers to muse on the role of women, married and un-, in Hispanic America. Academy-Award nominated ("The Official Story") Aleandro is wonderfully ditsy in her role as an older, married woman exposed to the possibilities of FemLib. The musical score is an added pleasure. Incidentally, the film's title is misleading.
