Spanish witty flavor
This is a comedy that is best flavored in its original language. Subtitles do not give full credit to the Spanish clever dialog. This is a movie for everyone. Who would not go crazy if your mother do something assumed drastic and unexpected? The reactions of Sofia's daughters when encountered with her mother's new love are funny, then dramatic but finally leveled at the end. I laughted most of the film and the mixed audience at the theater was laughing loud too. I liked the film because it is original and funny. The acting of Leonor Watling is superb. Leonor plays Elvira, the middle daughter of Sofia. Elvira has a bag of insecurities but her sensibility is more keen than that of her sisters. She will join Sol and Gimena, her sisters, in plotting to ruin their mothers love affair with Eliska. Eliska is a talented foreign pianist about the age of Elvira. The unexpected situations created are well presented in the film. This is a wonderful comedy.
