Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A tiresome roundelay of lies, lust and leaping paranoia.
Fresh: Results are offbeat and amusing, but also a bit thin as the whole essentially amounts to one long shaggy-dog joke.
Fresh: It's easy to settle in for the oddball charms of this tale of love among the ruins.
Fresh: A bone-dry and nearly pitch-perfect combo of romantic comedy, absurdist farce and alien-invasion drama...
Great Date Movie
Sick of formulaic rom-coms? This indie Spanish comedy is unique, dry and at time absurd (in a good way!). The cast is great and the actress playing Julia is eye poppingly beautiful in every moment on screen. People looking for cheesy romantic comedies need not apply (so make sure your date for the movie is as cool as you are). I highly recommend this film.
I was not expecting much and ended up enjoying this. Would love to see Julia in a few more films… :)
The characters are not as stupid as they act....which makes the movie totally unbelievable.
