Movie Reviews

Quite possibly the PERFECT MOVIE
M. Kendrick | 08/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike many foreign films this movie actually has a story, with a beginning, middle and end. Despite the cover this is a film the whole family can view comfortably. Does not rely on special effects, sex, or chase sceens. It's fun witty dialogue gives us hope that maybe people still know how to write. I love this movie!"
Alvaro knows how to make fun of social issues
Juan Panizo | Lima Peru | 08/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"you have to understand the Latin soap opera culture and not being part
of the typical soap opera viewers to be able to fully enjoy this movie.
Alvaro's sarcasm and sense of humor makes this film to be the first of
its class in Peru. A soap opera being filmed in a family house, the
maids (already involved in the show) get involved as part of the
cast, and eventually the home owner will get involved with the filming
and with the director as well. Very good acting and direction, i'm sure
the next one will be as fun as the first of Alvaro's work...
