What if you could suddenly let go of filters and say what you really think? In the midst of a routine, boring life full of demands and pressures, a casual and magical encounter will make Pilar (Natalia Oreiro) turn “Re Loca” (super crazy). Work, friends, her boyfriend and family will witness the liberating consequences of this revealing change. Of course, getting rid of the the people and situations that drain her energy isn’t going to be that easy. They tend to not want to go without a fight, after all, she made life all too comfortable for them. This is a comedy not to be missed with very relatable characters in a subject of much relevance.
Pilar is a typical Argentinian woman trying very hard to deliver all the things that society demands of us: kindness, patience, understanding, a lending hand and keeping her head down even in the face of injustice. All this work begins to take a toll on her mental health. She is in love with her best friend, but she ‘respects his space’ to figure things out, so she settles for accepting a life without romance. Life seems pretty dull and frustrating until she realizes that she has options, that she is free to live whatever kind of life she wants.
When things begin to change, at first it seems like the work of magic. However, as she gains more confidence and awareness of her own power, she comes to terms with the fact that she has settled for a lot less than she deserved, and becomes determined to not accept anything less than what she is willing to give. I really enjoyed seeing this transformation, specially at the end of the movie.
Overall, I give this movie a rating of 10 because I felt identified with her level of frustration while laughing so hard that I cried 🙂
