User Reviews

 
The lady and the proletarian
7 April 2021 | by borgolariciSee all my reviews

The plot is very archetypical: rich wife who has everything but love, falls in love with proletarian man who has nothing to offer but love. Her husband plots from the sidelines like a true wealthy villain. The script is also very cliché and the characters aren't exactly nuanced. Acting is ok but KST gives of hysterical vibes while Sergi Lopez does a good job.

Not a bad movie, locations and camera work are super good, but don't expect much plot wise.
