This movie was incredible. Even though I'm from Puerto Rico, I don't usually watch movies from Puerto Rico, but it was great. I saw it twice this weekend. The movie was not filmed in Vieques, though. It was filmed in Culebra, an island belonging to Puerto Rico. This island's beaches are considered among the most beautiful in the world, and this is pretty obvious when you see the movie. I really do hope they nominate it (it is still not nominated) for best foreign film and that it wins because it is excellent. I'm not a very big fan of Roselyn Sanchez, but with this movie I realized she is very talented and without her acting, the movie would not be as good as it is. I recommend this movie to everyone, no matter what their nationality is.
