Maria is 30 years old, she is a peculiar person and has one goal: become a normal person. But first of all she must discover what is exactly this. Which kind of person is she? Is she a normal person? What does exactly means? That question goes deeper into her mind. After she lists every requirements, she proposes to reach them. In that journey she will find her brother's help, Alex, a 25 years old boy who is mentally challenged and achieves every list requirements. She meets Borja as well, a boy obsessed with diets and lose weight. They will make a curious pact: she helps him to live an active and healthy live, and he helps her to meet her goal: become a normal person.
The role of Borja was written for Borja Glez Santaolalla, hence the name, but the actor started losing weight and Leticia Dolera didn't want to interfere with his health without knowing when the shooting would begin. See more »
I'm a big fan of quirky, funny and relatable movies.
Sometimes I know most of this movies are not technical masterpieces, or simply they lack in substance, but that does not make them less enjoyable, after all, the main purpose of cinema when it was born was more to entertain an audience that was going through a rough time, during ww one, all of the complex and technically appealing works came a long time after.
Keeping that in mind, I love the way this movie portraits the idea of "being normal" as the basic aspects of what nowadays is considered a "successful life" and shows it as something quirky and relatable and it's persistent in showing you how being different can be something good. It's not a deep reflexion in life, it's just quirky people doing quirky things.
The characters are moderately good, they have a good, but small development and overall they're fine.
The scenery is something I found quite beautiful, but that's just a personal opinion.
It's definitely enjoyable and it can get you a couple of laughs. It's definitely not gonna win a Cannes but it definitely is not bad.
I think is a really fun and beautiful film.
