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 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

Great point, Steven. I agree, thank you for saying this.

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.
