I understand that some associate Hollywood (or even more generally speaking America) with movies and scripts that are easy to digest to put it mildly. That being said, other countries have adapted that and are not always behind when it comes to that formula. This spanish language movie is a perfect example (don't be irritated by it being on Netflix as another reviewer obviously was and put it as American made).
Again since there are cliches being served and the movie moves along as expected, one can be forgiven comparing it to Hollywood made movies. So if that is the vibe you are looking for ... on the other hand, if it is something you are trying to avoid, maybe leave this alone. Still the acting is better than your standard romantic movie from America and miles if not worlds apart from those Hallmark movies (or TV movies of the week or whatever they are called). Not special but not really completely bad either
