Excellent Movie
16 March 2005 | by maravillayoSee all my reviews

This movie is wonderful. I loved the acting, the music, the photography, etc... Even when I am not a movie-expert, I consider that this movies contents the most important thing that any movie has to have: LIFE The movie touched me and I am very glad to have seen this movie in Mexico at the premier in this country.

Very very well done to all the people involved, specially to the producers, Moy Jafiff, Benito Salerno and Aquiles Enriquez.

Of course, every one of the actors deserves my recognition and admiration, Katy Jurado was an excellent actress and human being and this movie shows the best of her. Imanol is a very cute guy. Ana De la Reguera and Jaime Aymerich complements the history with very good acting. Thank you to every one of the people who make this movie a reality.

Ml, Maggie
