A romantic comedy reflecting on the value of romantic comedies
I doubt that a movie like this will ever reach large audiences, however I could enjoy it during a long flight to South America (this is indeed a Chile-Argentina co-production). It is a playful but sharp Romantic comedy, whose protagonist is a movie critic, who tired of the triviality of life and of romantic comedies reflecting that same life finds himself to live a true romance, and has to cope with it, thus questioning all his certainties about life and cinema. So, the eternal dilemma of art representing life and vice versa is brilliantly explored through the progress of his love story. Movie lovers, of any kind, will love this picture, showing both visual references and quotes from some famous movies of the past, they will like its ironic attitude towards the sophisticated and out-of –the world critic, who gets alienated from life by thinking in French as if he were living in a nouvelle vague movie. I also appreciated its re-affirmation of the value a good romantic comedy, without too much ambition, except that of entertaining and pleasing the viewer. And that was the effect on me, it was 100 minutes of entertainment and helped stand a long flight, with funny moments and some reflection on the art of cinema
