Truth or dare ?
7 September 2006 | by simipurzaSee all my reviews

Spanish films and especially Spanish comedies have a very subtle touch to them. Humour is a tool very skillfully used in this movie and is guaranteed to appeal to those looking for a light, yet meaningful comedy.

The actors' performances are brought up to high levels, and although this isn't a film thriving for a place at the Oscars, it is very well done, with good directing and music.

The action of the movie develops around 4 characters, more exactly 2 couples. One of them is Ernesto and Lea, and the other Alberto and Susana. The first of them are a middle class couple, with Ernesto a kind of laid-back individual and Lea a very ambitious TV translator for deaf watchers. The 2nd couple represent the friends that always have more than you. Alberto and Ernesto are very good friends, Ernesto working for his friend's father. When Ernesto is diagnosed with terminal-faze brain tumor, things start to complicate.

A great movie, for ala.

Rating: 9/10
