Sounds Like Love is a film directed by Juana Macías. It stars María Valverde, Álex González and Elisabet Casanovas in the main roles.

It fulfills its objective without enchanting most cineastes. What we expect without dazzling.

Storyline

Maca has a disastrous life when she turns 30: Neither her emotional nor her professional life suit her sensitive spirit.

The film. Review

Urban comedy, simple with an obviously female main character and themes that aim to give a “new” vision with a cooler profile and in tune with the times: social networks, influencers and so on.
Light jokes without offending anyone… in this new comedy that does not mess with anyone, nor has the license to do so, because the lawsuits seem to have already entered history and now immediately take social justice: if you do something that does not comply with the canon, you will be ipso-facto destroyed. This comedy does not play that and does not seem to want to; it does not engage in controversy, does not want to, and should not, and no one seems to be allowed to.
The time for Life of Brian is over.

It’s a generational portrait of women in their thirties. As such, it’s not bad, but it lacks its own style and goes a bit “to the usual” with the mess with the boys, some controversy at work with the typical boss (in this case boss) bully, and society that does not seem to understand sensitive people (an easy argument to grasp from an even simpler point of view).

As vain entertainment, there’s nothing wrong with the film, and if you are looking for something profound from a different perspective… well, you may have to look elsewhere. The film confines itself to fulfilling the script of a romantic comedy, and it does that well and with brilliant actresses who we like from the first moment and for whom we immediately feel a feeling (very important and perfectly realized).

He controls the rhythm and timing well, the supporting actors… everything is in its place.
Elaborate staging and good costume work.

The direction, very correct.

Our opinion

Comedy without too much pretension, that keeps what it promises and promises what it gives: Objectively fulfilled without falling into polemics.
