Incredibly original, no movements of the camera, no music. Just two stories, just two lives, shown in an incredibly natural way.

Unfortunately for foreigners it will be impossible to understand the typical Spanish way of talking of the actors. Maybe they are a little bit polite, in Spain we are more rude while talking, especially in a village where one of the characters (Adela -> Sonia Almarcha) is supposed to come from.

In some movies, I have seen actors trying to be natural, but finally they end artificial, in this case the director has managed to make their cast simply real. The performance of the actors is very high, you can believe them...! Especially (Antonia -> Petra Martínez) a very typical Spanish mother who can do anything for their daughters, even forgetting her needs to give the most to them. I have checked the awards and she got just one, I guess there were very good performances that year because on the contrary, I cannot believe that her work does not deserve more.

The movie may be categorized as slow, but I think the speed of it is adequate and necessary to represent reality.

Finally, I really liked that due to the fix camera, we could watch the characters from perspectives that are not usual in films. It is a great, great movie.
