Difficult. In itself liked to watch (and smoothly), but also raised the eyebrows a few times with so many bizarre plots. A little too much hay on the fork it seems with a touch of exaggeration. I am less familiar with the work of Julio Medem, but exactly in the measure of his oeuvre, it turns out?

There is no end to the "and", "and", "and story". Medem always takes it a step further and you end up in a strange love triangle of a gynaecologist, football scout and single mother. And growing teen Dani is okay with it no matter what. The question that also haunted me was which character suffered the most: Magda or our sympathetic Arturo? Because it is something and it tended to be too sentimental for me at times. Not to mention the singing gynecologist or the trip to the bar.

A film that also leaves little room for mourning or processing it. Subsequent scenes left little room for sadness. It just shifted up a notch as if the past didn't matter anymore. Arturo in particular hardly looked back, despite the immense suffering he endured. Fortunately, I can always appreciate Penelope Cruz's acting, as well as Luis Tosar's. Although the film was again dented with the corny and predictable ending ( wonderboy Dany who scores the winning goal, Magda who still sees her daughter, Arturo and Julian who play the perfect family). No, just too much.
