Trivia

The alledged first film of the starring actress, "The girl who cried bitch" (La niña que gritó puta) makes reference to the actual first film of director Campanella from 1991, "The boy who cried bitch" (El niño que gritó puta). See more »

Goofs

When Martín plays pool, the last hit is visibly difficult. The shot is cut, but the camera does not move. The actors are motionless, but the audience is never shown the moment where the 8-ball is hit - only the ball that is going to hit the 8-ball, then the 8-ball moving to a pocket. See more »

A story we all know
26 May 2019 | by lucas_isjustmeSee all my reviews

An actress remembers her glory days while she meets a mysterious fan couple that accidentely stops by on her house. The first half of the movie gives a very intriguing premise with solid performances, as a drama works perfectly, as a comedy fails with very forced and unnefective jokes. The problem of the movie is that once you start solving the puzzle, the story feels very stupid and ridiculous (specially the twist) to force a predictable ending. I give it a 5 because of its very strong acting that made the movie watchable.
