But when a seductive stranger comes into her life and forcefully proposes starting over, Luisa is confronted with the grieving process she had previously done everything to avoid. The new man's overwhelming energy may be hiding warning signs about his character, and the possibility of rebuilding a family starts to blur with a powerful anxiety that overcomes everything and everyone in its path.Written by
A movie is above all a story. It can have an excellent production and ambientation to an era, beautiful photography and even refined music, but if it doesn't have a story worth telling in its heart all is left is the aesthetics just as empty as a screen with only explosions and bullets flying around with no content. The actors do pretty good with the script and the story they are given but their acting is lost in the meaningless story. Some stories are meant to be told, some others are only relevant to the families that live through them and the script and the story seems only relevant to the family in the movie and probably the directors family but not anyone else. A 15 minutes short film could have told what the director took 95 mins to tell. When in a theater 20 out of 30 people fall asleep you are doing something way wrong, or the way we argentines call it, un BODRIO.
