| Beware of the moon (or this movie)
Let me start off by giving this movie the credit its due to get. It stays true to itself from beginning til the end. And while I am anything but a fan of telenovelas, shouldn't I have known, what I let myself into? Let me clarify this, as stated at some of my other reviews, I do not read anything about movies I'm about to see. And since I was in Greece I wanted to watch a few movies that were made there to get a sense of the film culture.

The good, the bad and the ugly ... this could be categorized in the latter two. The actors might look good, but is that what you look for in "actors"? Suffice to say, that they probably had a great time shooting this, but when "feelings" get beat into your head, nausea is there to engulf you ...

When our two main ... people meet and see each other eye-to-eye, you get a slow motion scene that will haunt you for the rest of the movie (quite literally at times). And while the telenovela audience might not have a problem with the cliché ridden story, this is something that should never have "graced" the big screen. It is too easy to trash this movie (for obvious reasons) ... so I will stop here. The brother and one of the fathers seemed to bring some quality into this ... but it never happened. Goes to show you though, that with bad directing (and script) even performances cannot overshadow that ...
