All Very Natural, No Low Bumps
24 November 2020 | by maurirbravoSee all my reviews

When I heard the real story and when I saw what the film was being made, I knew that it was a story that deserved to be brought to the screen ... but there were risks that everything would be done with cheap shots.

Luckily, they had the right director and cast... and they made a great movie, just the right length... without going too long.

It is just as the director said in an interview: it is moving (without resorting to easy tears, it is all natural), but also funny (without being exaggerated). It is like life. Sometimes light, sometimes intense, and deeply dramatic.

We see Valeria totally committed to the role, and she does it with great respect. They are all barbarous, even - dare I say - Lamothe. I know he's made of wood acting, but here he convinced me as Maria's partner, who was always by his side.
