Unoriginal comedy
20 February 2018 | by hof-4See all my reviews

María has been taking care of her father Antonio since her mother died. This has been especially trying during Antonio's recent cancer treatment. María (as well as her brothers) is blindsided by Antonio's announcement of marriage to his nurse Cachita. Not overly original, but there are some possibilities. Regrettably, these are not exploited, and the script is predictable and loaded with clichés.

Bárbara Lennie plays María. She carries her weight for a while but then becomes tiresome (she is far too long on screen). Cachita (played by the Argentine actress Marina Skell) is Argentinian and she is depicted as clueless, pushy, overbearing and uneducated according to a not infrequent cliché in Spanish movies. The dialog is trite, except for some sharp exchanges in a beach scene. There is too much bad music, including a scene where Dani, María love interest sings and plays the guitar, which qualifies him as one of the worst musicians/poets on earth. That may be intentional, however.

On the positive side, good cinematography that captures some of the beautiful, melancholic landscapes of Galicia, a province in the northwest of Spain.
