Originally, this movie was set to be a direct sequel of Yo soy la Juani (2006) with Verónica Echegui reprising her role. For unknowing reasons, the project didn't turn out, so Bigas Luna rewrote it and casted Elsa Pataky. See more »
My opinion is this movie is greatly undervalued, judging by the rather miserable rating. Surely it is far from a masterpiece, has no special plot twists and philosophy that goes no deeper than the necessary, but it shows life as it is, and in life everyone has to pay his or her price. And for the record , Elsa Pataky is just gorgeous and she is doing really great play. In fact all of the actors were top level, especially Peter Coyote, who left us some memorable quotes. Good directors job also. I agree that the story is nothing new under the sun, nothing to remarkable on the script, that is why i wont give it the highest possible score. However it is a finished product, a movie that leaves no room for disappointment from my point of view. A deserved 8 from me.
