beautiful portraits
11 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film of its actresses more of its plot. Because the performances are the central pillar of this pure Spanish film. Prostitutes story, it gives a splendid portrait of sadness, loneliness and the second chance. A great film with a magnificent cast. Nothing original, at the first sigh, but all impressive for the touching nuances and precise portraits. So, a profound beautiful film.
