      Audience Member Rara, aunque no precisamente en un sentido negativo, esta muy bien, es poetica y romantica incluso... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Guion elegante y dinamico, esta sencilla adaptacion de la novela de Reverte atrapa sutilmente hasta enredarnos en su trama policial de crimenes y asesinatos sin grandilocuencias. Es comedida y bien dirigida en su ritmo sin mas pretensiones siendo las secuencias de esgrima un deleite a los ojos. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Great the first time I saw it soon after it was out. Now I'm trying to locate a copy of it to watch it again with my sword woman's eye.
