Bella is without doubt one of the least apologetic blendings of heartfelt intentions, cinematic manipulation, and ultra sentimentality that I have seen in some time.

This is not a weepy, but a story about healing, forgiveness and redemption.

Bella is mostly harmless, feel-good fare, and not unlike a TV movie of the week in depth. And you could take your old granny with you to see it, without fear.

Alejandro Gomez Monteverde's first feature may have more heart than head, but it's also just as interesting for what it leaves out of its romantic story as for what it retains.

'Bella' is a good beginning for Monteverde. He exhibits the making of an excellent director. This film is not quite there yet, but it's close.

The movie works because we care about all the characters, especially with writing that rings true, not maudlin.
