''SANGRE'' Is something that the director doesn't have in her veins
25 April 2006 | by ser_insociableSee all my reviews

First of all...I WANT MY MONEY BACK!- THIS MOVIE WAS IN COMPETITION!. ''THE STORY IS ABOUT A MARRIAGE THAT HAS A BORING LIFE AND EVERYTHING CHANGES Because OF THE MAN'S DAUGHTER ARRIVING''...It called my attention...I have to admit, but... I went to see this movie(?) at the BAFICI in Buenos Aires because I (and also all the people who was in the cinema with me) thought that it would be an interesting movie as many of the movies of the festival...but IT WASN'T AT ALL!...MY GOD! WHAT A BORING AND PRETENSIOUS MOVIE!!! I've seen lots of movies where the actors weren't professional and even though they made excellent performances but in this particular case they make an awful job! During the movie they weren't able to transmit any emotion...although sometimes they cried, they said ''I love you'', they fought... but they never showed sensitivity...they were like stone-shaped people... In the end of the movie is very difficult to give it a meaning... but the only thing that we could feel is that the director wanted to do something small but deep and with a message... OK, let me tell you something: the only thing that you'll perceive during the movie is emptiness...
