Magaly is about to leave the Canary Islands for a new life in Panama when Fernando arrives, ostensibly to wish her well before they part forever.
But Fernando — whose marriage, we suspect, is not going well when he tosses away his wedding ring during the cab ride in from the airport — has a different agenda. For reasons that are supposed to run deep but appear mostly connected to his libido, he wants to remake his life with Magaly. The repercussions of a secret tragedy and Magaly’s tendency to bed every woman she knows make this an unlikely prospect.
As an incorrigible flirt who runs on rum and sex, Santana bursts with spontaneity and cruelty, making Magaly desirable to men and women alike. Helmer Merinero’s awkward perf — including a scene in which he simulates sex with a stuffed Mickey Mouse doll — is brave to the point of masochism.
Although lensing favors movement and energy, pic has a workaday look. Pic is entertaining in its emotional excesses but is marred by unfortunate use of the trite song “Feelings” at two emotional junctures.
