If Javier Balaguer wanted to make a denunciation of ill-treatment against women he should've filmed a documentary instead of this movie full of clichés, stereotypes, unreal dialogs and the awful performances of Paz Vega and Sergi Lopez. I didn't expect much of Vega, she's so bad -although no one seems to notice- but I've always liked Sergi Lopez and I must admit that his work in "Sólo Mía" leaves a lot to be desire. Maybe he was influenced -in a bad Way- by Paz, or maybe Javier Balaguer has not the faintest idea about actors direction.
So if you wanna see a decent movie about ill-treatment you'd better go and see Icíar Bollaín's "Te Doy Mis Ojos". That's a serious movie, and with top quality actors.
*My rate: 3/10
An argument between a man and a woman is heard, then seen in black-and-white; then a series of flashbacks shows them meeting, getting married, and starting their family. The man is Joaquín, an ad executive with a fierce temper; the woman is Angela, a receptionist when they meet. The relationship unravels as each incident is more damaging. Angela's friend and confidante is the wife of Joaquín's boss, so their problems spill into his work. He refuses to seek help, and as he gets more threatening, the law does little. Is one or the other's death the only way this can end? And the flashbacks, where do they originate?—
