4 out of 10 Good
Marlene from Dublin, 20 Mar 2009
I you want to see Penelope Cruz (first movie) before beeing transformed by the magic touch of Almodovar and Javier Bardem showing his latino macho looks at his best.... dont miss it. Melting pot of love and relationships where all characters are crossing roads. Recommended.

1.5 out of 10 Not great
Sara from Laois, 08 Apr 2008
Didn't really enjoy this one. Had its moments but for the main part was over acted and just a bit silly. Is Penelope Cruz the only actress in Spain? I've watch five spanish film recently and she was in all of them.

Sub-titles! I had not realised this when I booked! Enjoyed very good performances, esp. Penelope Cruz. A slow enough love-story -enjoyable. Could have been "brighter" in spots.

OK film, a little silly in places, Edwardian parlour plot, but generally enjoyable.

Jose's overbearing mother Conchita (Stefania Sandrelli) fears her son will marry the daughter of a scarlet woman and takes action...she hires sexy, young Raul (Javier Bardem) who works in the ham factory and enjoys nude bullfighting, to seduce Silvia.
