Tragically, however, their dreams are shattered when Daniel comes out of prison and comes in search of help I went into this film not really knowing a thing about it, other than that it had been notorious for press screenings during which even the normally hard-hearted film critics had been seen coming out crying.
I thought I would be immune to this. I was wrong. I was fine for about the first 3 minutes of the film, spent the rest of the film with a lump in my throat and the occasional runaway tear, and then sobbed uncontrollably for the last minutes. At this point, I turned round to see if any of the in the hall were staring at me, only to see that they were as bad. When I left the cinema, I asked the usher if audiences always reacted like that.
I went on to see it 7 times at the cinema. I can't really explain why it is so sad without giving anything away, but the film is superb. Antonio Resines, a renowned comic actor in Spain, gives a marvellously subtle performance as a profoundly decent human being who just wants to make everyone happy and suffers the consequences, Maribel Verdu succeeds in making you care for her character, even though what she does would probably make her the villain in any other film, whereas Jordi Molla who lost out on the Goya Spain's Oscar to Resines gives possibly the most complex performance I have ever seen.
The way he veers from terrifying you, making you love him and breaking your heart is breathtaking. Also, the music of Eva Gancedo very reminiscent of that from Cinema Paradiso is fragile and poignant, complementing the film perfectly.
The film is marvellously directed by Ricardo Franco, who went on to win the Goya that year but tragically died shortly after. Sin embargo, como lector, no me conecte con el personaje de June. Pienso que esto fue una falla del libro. Todo depende de lo que el lector encuentra interesante. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
Gracias Amy Tan. Gracias por permitirme comprender esa naturaleza femenina que generalmente vive oculta e incomprendida. Report abuse Translate review to English. La historia es muy bonita y bien contada. Grandiosa historia!! Me encanta como describe la relacion de las madres con sus hijas y sobre todo que les da voz a todos los personajes, desde las diferentes persectivas; Amor de las madres que confundimos la hijas con incompresion. Otra cultura lejana pero cercana en sentimientos y relaciones de madres e hijas.

He only wants a place to live. Though he knows that Marina has strong, unresolved feelings for Daniel, Rafael does not want to lose her and reluctantly allows Daniel to stay for a few days that become weeks. With only lifetimes of strife in common, the three lonely, disaffected adults thus form an uneasy family.
Marina is reluctant to be left alone with Daniel, it is not him who she does not trust but her own feelings. To see her reaction, Rafael goes to his sister's house in the countryside, leaving the other two alone. Rafael comes back soon unexpectedly finding Marina and Daniel together in bed. He initially wants them to leave but finally comes to accept an uncommon arrangement and the three of them remain together with their daughter forming an uneasy family.
He finally leaves as Marina has said that he would do eventually. Nevertheless, not much later he is in trouble and Marina leaves to follow him. Rafael is now alone to take care of Estrella, the daughter. Time has gone by and watching the T. Then Marina is brought back to him. She is pregnant again and they have a second daughter. Rafael visits Daniel in jail; between them has finally grown appreciation and understanding. Daniel feels defeated, the lucky star that he thought he had has left him.
