There's not much substance to this short, but I certainly enjoyed watching beautiful people in a prettier-than-a-postcard setting. Victor likes the new American friend Rachel that his gang of friends has brought into the fold during their summer vacation. The problem is that Rachel knows no Spanish and Victor knows almost no English. To make matters worse, one of the guys in the gang is good-looking and speaks very good English. So how does our charming if tongue-tied protagonist connect with the pretty American?
Nothing profound nor anything complicated in this short. The reason to watch it, in my opinion, is the deft comic touch and boyish charm of Quim Gutierrez, who plays the somewhat bumbling romantic lead. "Vale" is fluff, but we all need a bit of pleasant fluff every once in a while.
Final note: the short was sponsored by a brand of beer, and the product placements are constant throughout the 10-minute short. It never gets annoying, but if you know to expect it, it's probably easier to ignore.
