Audience Member A simple story which rings true--Tender love!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member It's spanish, it's drama. Overall minimalism highlight the story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Perhaps it was said to be created based on true events. In addition to its kinda slow & dragging narrative, the ending was weak. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Sexy, well-done film. Luv Abril. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
