This movie is filled with a lot of emotions, and being Spanish they even managed to throw in a little Soccer lol.
The acting was incredible, from Penelope, to her supporting cast, to the child actors. I enjoyed the way the movie took us away at times to an almost dream like state.
The comic relief was on the ball. Based on the topic at hand this was obviously not a comedy, but as in real life from time to time laughter is the best medicine. I gave the movie 8 stars but I think that most people who are movie aficionados will give it a higher ranking. I have a feeling that this one might get an Oscar nod, lets see how that turns out.
I especially liked the few twists and turns it had. It jeeps you paying attention and on your toes right up to the last scene in the movie.
Make sure to see it and make sure to most post your thoughts.
