  1. A syrupy Italian power ballad along the lines of the ones on the movie's soundtrack. Its tune is mawkish, bombastic but, in the end, not especially resonant.

    Good story and acting make this a compelling film. Cruz, particularly, is heartbreakingly true.

    Sincerely awful and extremely mysoginist. Very bad editing.
