    San Francisco Chronicle

    Mexican filmmaker Antonio Serrano applies the fantasy device so haphazardly as to render it irritating instead of surprising. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The attempt to make this intimate movie more exciting is misguided; we can find plenty of manufactured thrills at the multiplex. What's wrong with a little quiet, old-fashioned charm? show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Nicely shot and edited, but the movie is a narrative mess, which wouldn't be so bad if all it were up to was depicting Lucia's ups and downs. But the film takes too many illogical detours to be of much use. show more

    TV Guide

    A sentimental look at love and middle-aged discontent thinly disguised as a comic adventure story. show more
