I saw this movie tonight at the Chicago Latin American Film Festival. I had never heard of this movie, but I have to say it was a nice film. The director was even on hand to answer questions about the film. It is not that long, about 97 minutes, it does get a little slow in the middle, but more than makes up for it three quarters of the way through, and right up to the end. The love interest angle in the film between the guy who wants to rob the bank and his wife works well. This film, according to what the director herself said tonight, was filmed in San Juan, Puerto Rico in about 18 days, and is in Spanish with English subtitles(easy to read). I would call this film a light comedy, with a touch of drama, very breezy type movie. It is definitely worth watching.
