like two parentheses. or decent solution to a simple story, beautiful more for its actors then for the story itself, who uses old nice clichés but not more. the look of Jorge Valls and his credible Dani, the presence of Gloria Roman, maybe, a little the performance sketch of Marcos Ruiz are good points for a film who has a too precise target. sure, a cute actor, few beautiful images, the dream and the courage of an old friend to proof his feelings are not bad solutions. only ordinaries. and this fact does “My Friend Jaime” a seductive film against itself. because the love of Dani for Jaime must be build, in real sense, by the viewer. its beginning and its way, the old run competitions and the basic links between the two young men. after the entire process, the film has good chance to be more than brilliant.
