a total disappointment
9 October 2006 | by dcldanSee all my reviews

Andres is from Murcia (a poor region of Spain, at the 50's) and goes on holidays to Paris. There he meets Ninette, the most beautiful girl in France and they fell in love. At the end they get married, but then, her exuberant body will cause Andres to become too much jealous. At first I wanted to watch this film as it was one of the best of the year (in Spain), it was also from Mihura's text and well I do not love Garci, but he does good films sometimes... Unfortunately, it is not very good, the main Character, Andrés, results absolutely stupid and most of the time, all that is happening has no sense (for example when andres is thinking in having an adventure with his secretary... who'd do it having Elsa Pataky as wife??). The directing is correct, nothing more, and the story results boring. The only good point is the fact that we can see Elsa Pataky nude many times, which, well has any artistic value but she's very pretty... To sum up, there are better films everywhere
