Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A fresh take on a familiar concept, sharp writing and directing, along with wonderfully complex characters and performances, deliver both laughs and tears in this well-told story. Live Twice, Love Once, an award-winner in Spain, is a mature film that deals effectively with both family separation and reconciliation in sorrowful times. Young Marfalda Carbonell's feature debut as Blanca is remarkable. The film's creative team, however, struggles with the resolution. As the story plays out, there are a surplus of possible final sequences. The one they choose for Emilio Pardo felt felt more forced than they probably realized. Still, the movie is well worth a look.
