Mike is romantic and persistent, a social worker at a psychiatric clinic who falls for a new intern. Gabriela is passionate; she's also engaged; although her love for her fiance Patrick seems more fraternal than erotic, she has an overwhelming sense of obligation to marry him. Mike gets dubious counsel from a colleague, Douglas, who's seems to have a new relationship weekly, and from his unhappy brother. She gets advice from her supervisor, whose long-term marriage ended badly. Gabriela can't seem to say no to Mike, except when he asks her to end her engagement. She heads home to Mexico to introduce Patrick to her family. What's Mike to do? Will anything change her mind?Written by
Far from the bloody nonsense of so many independent films, here is a film that has characters and situations regular people can relate to.
Charming and engaging, this is a movie that stays with you for a long time afterwards.
The actors do an amazing job and are very well directed.
The photography is beautiful and evocative and the music is much better than in most recent films. The song "Te Amo" will stay with you for a long time, in part thanks to an intentionally slightly off-key, yet heartwarming live performance of it by the lead Jaime Gomez.
