i obviously have seen this film a few years ago because i rated it a 7 at that time. but i totally forgot, so i checked out the DVD again.
when i was watching the beginning, i sort of remembered it. so i fast forwarded it to the end scene. it seemed interesting, i started watching it from the beginning again. now i am rating it an 8.
i can't believe that it was made 12 years ago, it seems like a classic film to me. it is just timeless. those actors were great, after all, they are real actors in real life. so the emotions are genuine.
it is always fun to watch foreign films to see what people around the world think, do, etc. i think that it showed the life of Spanish actors. and one of the guy looked like ashton kutcher. ;)
