3.0 out of 5 stars Realistic, but very slow..., 22 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Genova [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
While the movie covers aspects that are related to mourning (anger, denial,...), it shows a relationships that grows between the father and the youngest daughter (Mary), while he refuses to confront the eldest (Kelly). To some extent it is understandable because of the way the youngest is involved in the death of the mother and all the demons the child must face. However, it would have been helpful to have a last scene that shows how the relationship among the three of them (Mary, Kelly and Joe) evolves in spite of the absence of the mother once they face the crisis that occurs almost at the end of the movie. This is what happens in really life when a loved one dies: life goes one and there is like a lack of this continuity between the knot and the end of the movie. While the movie is slow, it goes with the pace of real life and has undoubtedly a more European approach.

4.0 out of 5 stars It depends on how many people will take advantage of the book!, 17 Oct. 2007
The book is OK, although I agree with one of the reviews, which said that it took like 20' for the reader to get through the whole book. As for me, I am still hesitating whether I am a skittle or a vase, or a hybrid of both. I did like though, all the advice that appears for both body types, and it was good to notice that I was unconsciously doing some things (like wearing chunky heels), while I had not realized the importance of a good haircut in order to give some balance to a skittle silouette. I will share the book with friends and sisters, whom I believe will appreciate all the advice that appears for several body types.

5.0 out of 5 stars Súper bonito & recomendable!!!, 31 July 2007
El libro está súper bonito y muy bien organizado. A pesar de que no es exactamente un libro enfocado 100% a moda, sí está bien documentado en aspectos como cirugía estética, primeros auxilios, así como el capítulo que dedican a "goals". Una desventaja que encontré es que es un tanto local, porque hay cosas que no aplican a México (high street shops, por ejemplo). Uno de los tips que más me gustaron es acerca de organizar la muda de ropa una noche antes, para evitar andar perdiendo el tiempo en la mañana en decidir qué ponerse. Súper recomendable!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnífico!, 18 May 2006
I read the Spanish version, for I am Mexican and my native language is Spanish. The book is just great and it keeps you hooked through the entire story. Funny, misterious and highly recommended for those who love Latin American and Spanish writers.
