Both made a promise when they were kids: they would work a lot to get to the top of their career has actors. The second step is to enter in the Dramatic Art Faculty in Madrid. As always, specially in the teenager world, love spoils their plans. Carlos fells in love when he meets a perfect girl, Diana; who also works in the park and is going to act in "Carmen". Even though she is in love with Carlos, Polilla will help him get Diana with a great plan: don't let her think you love her. That's the only way Diana would look at him. At the end, will love win or obsession? Written by Roland Her

Excellent teen movie to watch with the whole family or a girlfriend
22 December 2007 | by amalla1970See all my reviews

I have to say that I liked the movie a lot. This movie is similar to "Cant buy me love" with Patrick Dempsey. Most of the cast Male and Female are good looking for example Carlos character reminded me a lot like Tom Welling from Smallville shy and having trouble to take the leap.

I mainly watch this movie after seen Elsa Pataky on "Ninette" and wanted to see other films where she has worked before. Cant wait to see Santos.

Diana (played by Elsa Pataky) always has to be on top and this made a barrier to the character Carlos making it impossible to him to talk to her. Elsa gives life to Diana with her enchanted smile and perkiness.

Carlos (Played by Sergio Peris-Mencheta) couldn't find the way to break the ice with Diana buy his friend Polilla (Played by Vanessa Sáiz)help him on his quest.
