Based on stories from the radio show "El Chacotero Sentimental", -something like The Love Joker- It's a real radio show where anyone can call and tell his/her sentimental problems, and its announcer -Rumpi- tries to guide them with humor. The movie... Three stories... They are: "El Patas Negras", "Secretos" and "Todo es Cancha". The second story -"Secretos"- is the best and most powerful in my opinion. Very cinematographic and with the emotional depth required. It has an schizophrenic look and feel. Very adequate. The performances are all very good, especially Claudia Celedón and Tamara Acosta. The movie goes from light comedy to hard drama to comedy-drama. And it surprisingly succeeds in all three. A warning though: the announcer appears from time to time during the stories; this can be distracting for some people; I think he is a bit overacted -well, he's not an actor, this is the real guy playing himself- his part needed more work to be completely satisfying. Anyway, this was by far the most successful Chilean movie ever seen in Chile in decades. Surpassing in the box office such films as "The Sixth Sense" and many other Hollywood blockbusters... for weeks! This is one of the best Chilean movies I've seen in a while. Not since "La Frontera" has another Chilean movie really moved me like this one did. Great work.
