The ball I threw while playing in the park has not yet reached the ground
I don't give a damn if if her skin feels like a peach or sandpaper It's irrelevant. if she wakes up with breath like an aphrodisiac or an insecticide. I'm perfectly willing to put up with a nose that'd win first prize at a carrot show. But on one thing I am intransigent. On no account whatsoever will I forgive a woman who cannot fly. If she can't,she'd better forget me.

This movie hit the box-offices in Argentina and drove the standard Hollywood movies out of their normal first places, concerning the numbers of spectators. And not without reason! The movie is not only a love story -the quest of a poet for the perfect woman- but also a story of the ´soul´ of Argentina. It is all about life and death and death in life. The style is superb: surreal shots are mixed with more ´real´shots that ensure the movie does not become totally vague and incomprehensible. The abundant use of poems adds to the magical, surreal, romantic character of the film. The movie kept (and keeps) me to my seat until the end. Subiela shows great love for film-making and this is reflected in this masterpiece. See it!
