Review: (#1) As lovely a woman as Penelope Cruz is, this poster does very little to sell the film. (#2) This a more interesting design than the first, though it’s still not exactly interesting. (#3) More interesting still than its predecessors, this design is interesting from a construction point of view, but from a goal-achieving viewpoint, it’s not so successful.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: The trailer struggles to find a happy medium between creating the idea of a cloying cancer drama and a stirring live-life-to-the-fullest story. Which wins out will depend a lot on the film, but one can’t have a lot of hope after this.

Oscar Prospects:

It could be a player in the Best Foreign Language Film race. The heavily dramatic material is perfect for Oscar voter tastes.
