Has anyone seen this film. I am dying to see it. Tell me what you think about it. It must be good, it was nominated under Best Foreing Film in the Oscars.

I haven't seen it yet but it opens here in NYC this Friday (I'll be the first in line). I've heard it is EXCELLENT!!! There was an excellent article with the director in the New York Times Magazine from 3/18/01.

Anyhow, if anyone is interested in Spanish & Latin American films, I am starting a weekly column. I currently have a review of Brazil's Oscar entry at:

I have not seen the movie yet but one of the actors in the movie (Jorje Salinas) is starring in a soap opera on Univision (Mi Destino Eres Tu).

Well, I just saw it this weekend and it was incredible. You can check out my review at:

It's well worth every penny and any time one might have to invest to go and see it. I think it's one of the top 5 films I've ever seen!!

Im2good4u33, Porque no te echas una vuelta a Tijuana a ver si la estan exhibiendo? Luego me dices que te parecio. Yo tambien tengo mucho interes en verla. Otra pelicula que esta buenisima es Amantes del Circulo Artico. Bueno en mi opinion las de Almodovar por lo regular son buenisimas. Te recomiendo que veas la pelicula Viridiana con la actriz Mexicana Sylvia Pinal. Suerte!

Perdon la pelicula se llama "Amantes del Circulo Polar".
No quise confundir te el director es Julio Medem y es Espanol como Almodovar. Mi favorita pelicula de Almodovar es "Atame" y "La flor de mi secreto". Ciao!;)

Gracias por tus recomendaciones, Maya. Yo le escucho que "Amantes de Circulo Polar" esta fantastico. Perdoname porque mi espanol es horible pero tiene otra recomendaciones de las peliculas Mejicanas? Mi favorito de Almodovar es "Tacones Lejanos".

therealslafa, there aren't very many Mexican films. There is a couple that I've seen at the video store that I haven't watched ("El Norte" and "Danzon")If you have seen them let me know what you thought about them. Some of my favortie movies are from Ingmar Bergman. I recently wathced "Monika". I think it is one of his best films, next to "Wild Strawberries". A friend of mine who is coming from Mexico today and is bringing "Amores Perros" so I'll be watching it tonight. I'm so excited!!!!!

I enjoyed "Danzon" a whole lot. "El Norte" was not bad, though parts of it were cheesy, too melodramatic and a tad long.
