Alicia is a high school teacher and a single mom who is not lucky with love. To escape her dull life she spends a great deal of time "chatting" online where she hooks up with a teenager who seems expert in sexual matters. She foolishly meets with him without imagining the tragic consequences this affair will bring upon both their lives. Little will Alicia know how this prohibitive and passionate relationship will end up haunting her forever.
Very good movie. Intelligent, well written and acted. About common people making mistakes and surviving them with eventually time to reflect that life is worth living. Not a boring lecture: just life as common as it is, but always verging on situations that can destroy it if an effort is not made to go on. The pace is a metaphor of the pace of daily life, not fast not slow. The acting is excellent including the teenage actors, all of them. Cecilia Roth is a veteran thus she delivers, always. Antonio Resines an excellent, character actor, as the grieving father. The contrast between the father figures is part of a sub-theme: absent-fathers (that of the teenage girl,) distant- fathers (that of Alicia,)dedicated-fathers (that of Zak-Javi and of the sick girl.) I recommend this movie.
