This interesting as well as charming film is full of humor , agreeable scenes , brief drama , good feeling and being deliberately paced . It is a simple , sympathetic and intelligent portrait of a few people who feel great sadness and loneliness . Both of them are seeking for a new love story , a second chance after they've ruined it all , concerning about the midlife crisis , the life disappointing , a lot of reflecting between the two protagonists and many others things . It has some moments of enjoyment as well as amusement and others quite a few embarrassing . Regular and unbalanced , but gaining the sympathy almost at all times . This particular romance is overspread throughout the movie , but not completely satisfactory , including conventional pitfalls . In spite of it , the movie results to be better than average , being surprisingly funny and compellingly realized . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , family , sons and love , with its amusing sides but also including some deceptions . The last half hour of the picture results to be the more unsettling and dramatic , it is the best part , where takes place some touching and tragic events and it just makes worth watching the flick . The movie is based on a radio programme titled ¨Little things that makes that live worth it¨ presented by the known anchor man Iñaqui Gabilondo . Very good acting by Eduard Fernández as a drunken who just came out of a big depression . As Eduard Fernandez at her best , he steals the show as an out of work man who suffered a car accident with fateful consequences . The picture relies heavily on the relationship between Eduard Fernández and Ana Belen who also gives a marvelous acting as a solitary public official who unexpectedly finds love . Support cast is frankly excellent such as María Pujalte , José Sacristán , Rosario Pardo , Zoe Berriatúa , Carlos Kaniowsky , Carmen Balagué , Fernando Colomo and Raúl Arévalo . Moving and emotive musical score by Bingen Mendizabal and including unforgettable songs sung by Joan Manuel Serrat , Joaquin Sabina , among others . Furthermore , a colorful and evocative cinematography by Juan Amoros .
The motion picture was produced by Cesar Benítez , being well written and directed by Manuel Gomez Pereira along with his usual collaborators : Yolanda García Serrano and Joaquín Oristrell . He usually writes his films and occasionally for other directors as "What Makes Women Laugh?" by Joaquin Oristell who in "Love Can Seriously Damage Your Health" is screenwriter and producer ; both of them are ordinary collaborators . Pereira is an expert on comedies as ¨¨Rose sauce¨, Why do they call it love when they mean sex ?¨, ¨Mouth to mouth¨ , "All Men Are the Same" , though he also has made some drama as ¨The hanged man¨ and this ¨Between your legs¨ . His latest projects, however, tanked as "Off Key" starred by an American-all star cast but was a failure both economically and artistically or simply didn't deliver as "Atrévete y Verás" . Nowadays , he directs TV chapters as ¨Gran Reserva¨ and ¨Cheers¨ series .
