I cannot begin to express how much I love this movie. It is one of those movies that I can watch again and again, especially if I am introducing someone to the movie who has not yet seen it.
I first saw this movie when it came out in the theatres, with a dear friend whose family is from Mexico. After the movie he told me "This is just like the stories that my abuela (grandmother) used to tell me." That was high praise indeed.
There is truly something for everyone in this movie - and every man I know who has seen it has enjoyed and appreciated it just as much as every woman - so, even though it's based on a grand, undying passion and romance, it is not by any means a "chick flick".
In fact, I consider it a perfect date movie.
The movie is in Spanish, and subtitled, but even if you don't know any Spanish at all, the subtitles are more than sufficient, and I, at least, found that I barely even noticed that I was reading the subtitles in order to follow along. By the second viewing, I barely even needed the subtitles.
Seriously, this is a fantastic movie!
