Garfia is a bloody murderer for whom the human life has any value. Natural leader, after he is caught, he leads lots of prison riots until he is keep in a total loneliness. There, he will spent two years, watching to anybody. The arrival of Emma to heal his wounds will men the first contact with human being and something (atraction, empathy) surge between them, and Emma makes his situation public and he is moved to a normal prison. Years later, they will meet again and then, love will begin, as Garfia learns how important is life. The story has a string beginning but later is quite lazy, it moves with time jumps (not told to us, you must be aware of them) and that's quite confusing. The prison part is well build, though topical, it is correct, and the beginning of the love story, quite believable, but as the relationship starts, things begin to result a little too candy, although the ending is well done. Antonio San Juan is a decent actor and makes a correct part, with his confused and dangerous character, on the other hand, Emma Suárez makes her usual part, as expressive as a marble statue. Probably a better actress could have result in a more touching movie. To sum up, the movie is not bad, is it entertaining, and, with some ups and downs, it goes decently, but the fact that Suárez is not good and some problems on developing the story makes it just watchable, nothing more.
