| A good approach to the subject but a little heterosexist
I think this film is very effective in showing the drama of a homosexual man who wants to be a father. The acting is good and the situations Manu goes through are real, this is what happens to a gay man in reality. There are two critiques that I can do. The most important one, the relationship between Manu and Phillippe is sort of "censored", we don't see them having sex and the re-encounter kiss is cut really really fast. We see very few displays of affection between the men. On the other hand there is a sex scene between Manu and Fina and several kisses. So from a gay point of view, there is sort of a censorship, or probably the actors were too inhibited to go all the way. I think it may have been necessary a sex scene or other display of affection between the men in the beginning before they split, just to be in balance with the "heterosexual" side of the movie. A minor critique, is that Fina and her mother are Spanish actors, and for an Argentinian viewer this is evident, though they try to copy the Argentine Spanish accent they don't get it right. The only real Argentinian actor or at least Uruguayan seems to be her father. But this is just a detail that doesn't affect the story.
