As good as its predecessor
30 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Sequel to "La Niña De Tus Ojos", which brings together the entire cast of the previous film, retaking the story of the characters about 20 years after what happened in the previous film, almost the same time that both films have been released between them.

Trueba pays tribute to the Spanish cinema of the 50s, returning to the character of Macarena Granada (played again by a wonderful Penelope Cruz) that after what happened in the previous film becomes a star in Hollywood and returns to Spain to star in a Biopic of Queen Isabella the Catholic ...

But Trueba is not limited to making a history of cinema within the cinema, but rather portrays a cold and gray Spain that at that time seemed to have lost all hope for a better future ... And as with the previous film, Story moves between comedy and drama achieving a perfect balance resulting in a movie as good and as its predecessor ...
