Summary: Its a good film with some excellent moving moments and quite a lot of fun. I am now very clear on the Spanish for prostitute and some other helpful colloquial terms. I like to watch Spanish films to improve my Spanish. I liked the ambivalence of all the characters.
I dare you not to cry or smile while watching this fine film

Summary: Loved this film. It's the second time I watch it and would definitely recommend it as it will make you smile and cry - it is full of emotion and gives you a glimpse into the life of prostitutes - not the sexy bits nor the glamour but the real people - human beings behind the scenes of prostitution.
Summary: Sad and touching film about friendship between two down beaten prostitutes trying to make it in a Spanish city in very tough circumstances. Well acted, bleak, and realistic . A good film and much better than most in this genre. It is a serious film without gratuitous sexual content and very watchable. Spanish film with sub titles.
Summary: A true hidden gem. Although its obviously about prostitutes, There is no gratuitous sex or violence. Just enough to carry the plot along. There are a few films around that look at similar themes to this but they are usualy more about the sex than the characters. This film focuses on the mind of the prostitutes and how they see their lives.
Summary: A heartbreaking but beautiful story of friendship, strong women and hard lives. Extremely well filmed and acted. It was good to watch a film carried completely by female leads, the horror and bleakness of their lives was portrayed sympathetically and honestly without sensationalism. A must watch for any fan of Spanish film. Ensure you have some hankies handy though, it was a bit of a tearjerker for me at least.
Summary: Probably one of the best Spanish films ever done. It is a great story that explores different aspects of a hidden part of society to many in Spain. It shows the friction between immigrants and Spanish and it expose a taboo topic 'the prostitution'. Prepare to spend the best 2 hours of your life. If you are too weak hire something else.
