What a waste of time!

"I had great expectations for this movie given the excellent cast. However, I found that it is little more than a shameless tear-jerker that doesn't even begin to accomplish that. Ricardo Darin is under-utilized as he seldom has any scenes, and this is unforgivable in itself as he is clearly the most talented actor in the movie. No plot (other than again, the cheap tear-jerking repeated situations); no flow (booooring beyond comprehension); no climax (what a lame ending!).
Don't waste your time with this movie and instead, enjoy some of Darin's other movies where he IS actually allowed to have a scene or two."

"(El Faro - The Lighthouse) is a good romance story except it is also sad. I first seen it through my HDTV on Digital Channel 8.3 V.Me/PBS One of the free digital channel. I then searched the internet if it was going to show again but it was the last time to show the day I seen 40 percent. Then I paid for it with Amazon download. This movie is rated-r. You will have to do research on the movies listed with Amazon.com before you buy them, because they might be Romance and then there is not complete details about if they are Rated-R or not."
