I saw this movie at the Lincoln Center in New York 2 days ago in one of those weird film festivals and I say weird because sometimes people remember only bad things of Latin America and forget the wonderful ones about us. This is one good-looking movie. The photography is breathtaking and the actors performances are wonderful. Especially good is the actress that interprets the role of Felipa, the teacher who falls for a sailor but finds solace in the arms of a 13 years old. Although the story slows a lot when the characters grow older, the story is flawless, full of passion and magic. Don't miss it!
