Bohemian and nonsense
26 February 2009 | by arifuxSee all my reviews

the movie tells the story of an ugly woman, and that's all, it has not a single moment of action or any kind of deep emotion expressed on the screen, it only tells the sad boring story of an ugly woman, its true that it has nice landscapes and the dressing and costumes of the epoch are well represented, but besides that it left no taste in my mouth it was as boring as watching a wall for an hour and twenty minutes with the difference that by watching the wall i could imagine cool stuff. I have nothing against Argentinian movies, in fact i've watched some of them last year that were really good movies, even with a slow pace and simple stories to tell, but this wasn't the case. This movie features nothing, there's not a single performance of quality, the actors spoke as actual Argentinians, supposing that the film took place one century ago, this is not believable, none of the characters (including the main character Gertrudis) has nothing, absolutely nothing to say, no importance at all in the story, some of them could even be erased and the movie would still be the same. I like Argentinian movies to come out, but please, not everyone deserves to be a director.
