I DVRd this movie just for the heck of it, even though I usually don't watch subtitled pics. Was it a ghost story? Yes. A horror story? Yes. A family drama? Yes. An outrageous sex comedy with a feminist twist? Yes. Great music? Yes. I loved the combination of the genres and couldn't wait to see how everything in the plot got worked out. At first I couldn't get past the jewelry, clothing, colorful everything, including the wedding venues. Whoa.Subtlety was not included! Then...wow. There was a murder mystery too. In the dead center was Carmen (Maribel Verdu) and her crabby husband's cousin, a store detective and part-time master stage hypnotist, and a case of inadvertent possession. I won't go into more detail and mess things up for you. Poor Carmen! Does she want original hubby back and who--or what--has taken him over? One thing I need to mention. In the very last line of the movie the translator makes a one-word disastrous mistake. Listen carefully to what Carmen says. Oops!
