I never saw anything as dreadful as this movie in my life. Never, I swear! It looks as done with a few Euro (for the camera rental), and nobody working on it got paid I'm sure. It couldn't possibly be any other way; everything is so static that one could fall asleep in every scene --they are THAT LONG--, the camera remains static for minutes at a time, the characters speak utterly boring lines.
The split screen is done with a vengeance to the bitter end of this horrible movie, almost for every scene.
One is forced to seat and seat, watching them do household chores like ironing COMPLETELY two T shirts (or something similar), from the beginning: One sleeve, right side (slOOOOwly), turn it, the other side, turn it; now the other sleeve (slOOOOwly), turn it, the other side, whoops! don't miss that wrinkle! okay, now the bodice of the shirt, be careful because it has to look very nice! let's see, first this side, now turn it (slOOOOwly), the other side..., NOW WE FOLD THE DAMNED THING...(slOOOOwly), and carefully once it's been folded, we lay it with care inside a basket full of other garments previously ironed and folded... in front of the camera... I wanted TO SCREEEEEAM!!!!
LET ME OUT OF HERE!! What do I care about these miserable people's problems!! Stupid people, stupid problems, the dialogs are moronic, so are the actors (probably the director's fault). Although..., maybe now that I think about it..., maybe THERE WAS NOT a director..., that's it! for a movie to be this bad, there was not a director!! Almodovar, Dear Almodovar... Where are you?? We need you, please!!
