Reviews

  1. :

    First I will say that this film is definitely worthy of the accolades and positive reviews it has received. I was particularly struck by the performance of Jorge Perugorría as the gay artist Diego. Perugorria’s performance draws you in whether he is being sly and bitchy or indignant and passionate. His unrequited love for David (Vladimir Cruz) is both sweetly naïve as well as crushingly sad. I won’t give away the final scene, but I will say that without Perugorria’s stellar performance throughout the film it would have been a less powerful moment.
