Director Daniel Sanchez Arévalo would have done well leaving a few subplots on the cutting-room floor. Quality almost always is better than quantity.
Bifurcated images, isolating the characters from their dreams and from one another, create a yearning atmosphere that pulls you in; like their director, you really want them to escape.
Tells [a] ludicrously compact, aggressively 'heartfelt,' colorfully contrived story.
What could have seemed insufferably self-pitying becomes strangely moving instead -- a sign of a filmmaker placing his absolute trust in their material and coming up all the stronger for it.
Writer/director Aravalo and a fine cast tell the story with great charm.
The plotline's complexity is matched by the depth of the issues explored, with the cast uniformly coming up trumps.
The actors form an appealing ensemble, bringing a warmth and appeal that make the film more compelling than its familiar themes might normally merit.
The plot of Spanish director Daniel Sanchez Arevalo's well-acted feature debut is the kind that his countryman Pedro Almodovar would imbue with bold colors, acid humor and perhaps a headstrong transvestite.
Daniel Sanchez Arevalo makes an impressive feature debut with this thoughtful, mordantly funny, deeply human film.
A terrific debut from writer/director Daniel Sánchez Arévalo.
It's a well-acted soap with one too many plot lines, tied together by genteel audio-visual sutures and supported by the brittle metaphor of its title.
This slice of quirky life story about a classy, unattainable suit in a store window, is one classy movie as well, ennobling its host of eccentric and tragic, yet determined and struggling, vividly realized characters.
It's frustrating how the dialogues tend to lack subtlety, therefore cheapening the emotional connection, but the characters are very well written and everyone gives a very good performance.
Beautifully filmed, nice score, well-acted. The characters are well developed and deep enough to be able to feel with them.
This is a movie about relationships -- relationships between family, between friends, between lovers, even one relationship where Jorge is trying to get his brother's girlfriend pregnant.
The movie keeps you watching with its interesting concepts. I'm not sure if Jorge does learn a lesson or not by the end of the movie though.
Why can't ALL movies possess such qualities?!
Foreign films usually possess this sense of je ne sais quoi. Review TBA.
