emanuelespies’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was really happily surprise when I read that the story was based on a book and in the book it was an old man, not a woman.
How many times we have the pleasure to see a male character changed to a woman? And being a lesbian?!
Just because of that I put an extra star for this movie.
Another interesting fact is that in the book the point of view is European but in the movie is from the Dominican girl.
In some moments I felt missing information. It could be longer maybe, to give more details.
Or maybe I just had this feeling because is Noeli point of view.
