      Audience Member Comedia costumbrista me gusta el termino y es que las describe muy bien esta es una tierna y amena historia Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Divertida, muy familiar y muestra de la nobleza y calidad humana que aveces dejamos salir, sin importar las diferencias religiosas y/o sociales. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Light comedy with a wonderful message of understanding among cultures. A pity it has not developed more the comic part (although is funny), and also falls a little too much in told-before-story-lines: with just a little effort, it would have been an unforgettable film. I got in love with the peruan group, they´re so lovely! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Muy entretenida. Un humor cálido sobre cómo las diferencias culturales pueden, de hecho, acercarnos más. La historia es interesante pero es llevada con mucha rapidez y algo de exageración. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Una historia que muy sutilmente narra el fenomeno de la inmigración a España y sus consecuencias. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member forma didactica para aprender algo del Islam Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
