Amusing film. Linguistically interesting.
1 March 2010 | by poolepoole7See all my reviews

This is an amusing little film, in a fun weird kind of way. I don't get the super negative reviews on this site. The movie is not high drama, and I don't think the director or actors intended it to be. It comes across as intentionally weird and tongue-in-cheek. If you don't like that kind of movie, don't bother watching it -- but if you do like movies that are a bit twisted, go for it.

Side comment: I was fascinated that the Spanish accent of rural República Dominicana is exactly the same as in Puerto Rico. I have not been out in that island's rural areas, but the accent in the capital Santo Domingo does not seem as close to Puerto Rico's. However, the RD accent in this movie was exactly the same as in PR. Seems the rural areas kept more of the accent of immigrants to these islands 400 years ago. Interesting cultural tidbit in the movie.
