Spanish Audio • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Rosario se siente como si su vida haya sido descarriladapor tener que cuidar de su madre que padece de una enfermedad mental. Por el otro lado, Milagros vive la vida excéntrica de un espíritu libre.Estas amigas de la niñez se conocen de nuevo de adultos y forman una amistad improbable cuando consiguen un trabajo limpiando las calles y parques de Madrid. Un descubrimiento sorprendente mientras que trabajan juntos cambia sus vidas para siempre. Adriana Sananes captaperfectamente la voz cínica de la desafortunada Rosario y también la de Milagros con su naturaleza infantil. Sananes también actúa con destreza los personajes segundarios, en especial los papeles de la madre de Rosario y de Morsa, el bienintencionado imbécil que persigue a Rosario.La actuación de Sananes da vida propia a las vidas de esa gente ordinaria con todos sus complejos y contradicciones, y el resultado es una experiencia completamente absorbente. S.E.G., L.R.P. trans.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Rosario feels her life has been derailed because of the burden of caring for her mother, who is mentally ill. Milagros, on the other hand, has an eccentric, free-spirited life. The childhood friends meet again in adulthood, forming an unlikely friendship as they obtain jobs together cleaning the streets and parks of Madrid. A surprise discovery during their cleaning rounds changes their lives forever. Adriana Sananes perfectly captures the cynical voice of down-on-her-luck Rosario and the childlike nature of Milagros. Sananes also deftly portrays secondary characters, in particular Rosario's mother and the well-meaning but doltish Morsa, who is pursuing Rosario. The result is altogether absorbing as the lives of these ordinary people, with all their complexities and contradictions, are given life in Sananes's performance. S.E.G.
