    Romantic comedy will make you laugh, but also share the frustration of the handicapped.

    A woman Juana loses her phone (actually threw it away in a fit of
    anger), but receives a call from a man who found it, Leon.. He is a
    charming conversationalist, but she is shocked when she sees him as he
    so short (and is referred to as a dwarf throughout the movie). He talks
    a good story and has a pretty sensational date near the beginning. They
    are both divorced, she working with her ex as lawyers while he has a
    cordial supportive relation with his wife. Her friends are upset that
    she seems interested in the dwarf, but she really enjoys his company.
    Of course there are ups and downs.

    Prejudice is a link. Juana is black and there is some expression of
    barriers, but she obviously overcame them, even marrying a white guy.
    Her sister is married to another white guy, who is deaf and receiving a
    little bit of prejudice. Leon, normally a very positive thinker does
    express frustration at how he has been treated and at one point relates
    to Juana’s minority status, but neither dwells on it.

    This is re-make of a film done two years previously in Argnetinaa, and
    although I didn’t see it I believe the plot is similar. Most of the
    movie is fun and you root for Leon who is trying to winning an
    attractive woman against her obvious discomfort level. Then you root
    for her when she is fighting social pressures.

    The background music was enjoyable, but you will probably notice the
    Latin dance music. The camera work has a few moments of impact. One
    part of the camera work I didn’t realize was how Leon who in real life
    (as Marlon is really over 6 feet tall. The actor playing his son is
    actually his son and plays a loving, but a little troubled son. The
    actors portraying Leon’s ex and Juana’s ex were very good.

    To me the star was Maria Nela Sinistrre who played Juana. She was
    charming in a very natural way and you identify with her conflict of
    wanting a relationship, but affected by those around her.
