Anita Takes A Chance (Anita No Perd El Tren)

AnitaNoPerdElTrenposterBBB.5

(out of 5)


Breezy, enjoyable little tale about a fifty-something widow () who is abruptly laid off from her job as a cinema box-office clerk, after decades on the job and a life devoted to the passion of movies. Unable to tear herself away from her accustomed habit, she becomes a fixture at the site where her old workplace has been demolished. While watching it under reconstruction as a modern commercial property, Sarda takes a nasty fall and becomes the site’s biggest legal liability, and in the process gets to know a bulldozer driver with whom she has a mild romance. Anita’s passage into the second half of her life, as frightening as it is with all its dangerous possibilities, makes for an engaging and winsome comedy that is constantly buoyed by Sarda’s witty narration and bravura performance.
