Time Out says

It may follow three female private investigators, but Spanish actress-turned-director Bollaín’s movie is no ‘Charlie’s Angels’ romp. Rather, probing the trio’s professional and private lives, it’s a realistic and ambitious survey of career women, modern relationships and 21st-century surveillance culture. Eva (Najwa Nimri), just back from maternity leave, turns her spy skills on her suspicious husband (Tristán Ulloa); working undercover, young Inés (María Vázquez) gets emotionally involved and questions how far she’s willing to go; while older Carmen (Nuria González) finds the joy seeping from her marriage. Adeptly juggling the many emerging strands, Bollaín’s follow-up to her acclaimed ‘Take My Eyes’ tackles changing ideas of privacy, trust and communication with subtlety and maturity.
