Ay Olivera...
13 June 2004 | by rominaferraroSee all my reviews

Gee, I don't know... why do I not like this movie? There are so many reasons, and none of them is good enough to hate the movie but the sum of them is quite disappointing.

First of all, the main actor is just awful. I haven't seen him in any other movie and, judging by this one, I won't see him again. Why he was chosen, I cannot imagine. Leticia Brédice is not that great either, but that does not surprise me anymore. Anyway, her character is not very good. The story is not amazing, ends abruptly and has no suspense, which is the biggest disappointment, being Juan Duarte's story so surrounded by mystery. Furthermore, there are some moments in which it seems just an excuse to make some remarks against Perón, Eva Perón and their government (I don't know if that's the case, but that's what I felt, even though I'm not a Perón supporter).

And most important of all: if you haven't spent enough money in your fake head, if you have a sorry plaster fake head that couldn't look human even among apes, you must NOT do a close shot of it!!! (sorry but it's true)

Well, now the good part, the part that made me give it a 5 and no less: even when I'm not old enough to have lived that times, I got the feeling that the setting was very good. Inés Estévez was absolutely great, a true diva. And Norma Aleandro was amazing as always. Alejandra Majluf, whom I never saw acting before, was quite good, I don't think she is an extraordinary actress, but somehow her part suited her perfectly, the resemblance is impressive. Marrale and Novoa had their moments. Their lines (especially her lines) are not great and their start is quite shaky, but they're fine. Nevertheless, none of them is good enough to save the movie.

Ay, Olivera, it could have been so much better...
