The best movie I have seen recently
10 October 2006 | by tvmost19-1See all my reviews

This is a beautiful and hilarious love story that touches on all kinds of very human themes like inter-racial romance, immigration and its effects on the family, sibling rivalry.. and much more. Plus if you have ever been to Madrid, you can recognize the streets of the Lavapies neighborhood. It is very authentic. All in all I think this is an amazing movie (which by the way I saw in the theater in Madrid) and I was laughing throughout the whole thing! The Spanish humor is great! If you're in the mood for a feel-good movie that has you laughing throughout and can even show you around Madrid a little, go for this one. The writers, director and actors have all done an excellent job!
