No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Vera's three actors -- Mollà, Gil and Bardem -- excel in insightful, empathetic performances.
[Javier Bardem is] one of the few reasons to watch the film, which director Gerardo Vera has drenched in swoony music and fever-pitched melodrama.
Extremely well acted by the four primary actors, this is a seriously intended movie that is not easily forgotten.
With the film's striking ending, one realizes that we have a long way to go before we fully understand all the sexual permutations involved.
Spain's greatest star wattage doesn't overcome the tumult of maudlin tragedy.
Movies like this are selling the old European candor, the old wink of 'bold' revelation. But in 2002, such revelations wilt.
It's sincere to a fault, but, unfortunately, not very compelling or much fun.
Despite some strong performances, never rises above the level of a telanovela.
Vera's technical prowess ends up selling his film short; he smoothes over hard truths even as he uncovers them.
Has all the complexity and realistic human behavior of an episode of General Hospital.
In addition to the overcooked, ham-fisted direction, which has all the actors reaching for the back row, the dialogue sounds like horrible poetry.
