Penelope was great, as usual. "Por tu preciosa locura" as Julian desrcibed it, our main character is exuberant despite the gravity of illness & mortality that surrounds her. I found that element of her character inspiring. I think it drove the movie and served as a great contrast to the ...Read more

This movie was certainly gripping, but too predictable, in terms of relationships. And the gynecologist's relationship with his patient was very uncomfortable.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Did you notice the way Arturo was looking at them before they went into the water? I wonder if it's a cultural thing in that it may be normal for more prominent displays of affection than for Western culture.

Sorry to go against popular opinion, but I really didn't like it. It felt cheesy and unrealistic. Also, the woman's life revolves around 3 men and her son, and the only other woman in the film is a nurse--not especially great from a feminist perspective

Why is the "feminist perspective" needed or relevant? This isn't a documentary. It's a fictional world -- someone's vision, someone's cinematic painting. It owes no one any debt.

In human history, how many women's lives have "revolved around 3 men and her son"? Too many millions to ...Read more

Great point, Steven. I agree, thank you for saying this.
She seemed pretty happy to me, anyway.
Looks like this wasn't a good pick for Tom.

I agree with you, though I would argue that the men cast in her life take on more feminine traits than other films. For instance, both the gynecologist and Arturo express deep emotions of friendship and affection, towards her and also towards each other. Although I find the feminist critique ...Read more

A beautiful and inspired performance by Penelope Cruz. Complex and insightful. Thought provoking. I will recommend it to friends.

Cruz should have been nominated for the best leading actress in Oscar 2015. A simple story with very profound meaning and a lot of its shades.

Penelope Cruz, once again, shows me why she is my fave actress. She handles this demanding role with finesse and a natural grace. This movie is a real tearjerker but its message of beauty and soulfulness transcends its grief. An inspiring and thoughtful picture.
