This article contains major spoilers, especially for the Sounds Like Love ending.


‘I made it. I’m where I wanna be,’ Maca says in a video to her friends, Adriana and Jimena, and I think this sums up everything. She’s been through so much but finally ends up where she wants to be.

I am not one for women who have been wronged going back to their exes in these films but Maca seems to be happy with her choices and still loves him. After all, the heart wants what it wants? But it felt weird at times because Leo left her, without saying anything.  They were supposed to move in together. 

Leo brings her to the same house they were supposed to move into together all those years ago. However, she decides to take the job in Paris and moves away, breaking Leo’s heart — as she should, he did it first! But for real, this was great because she still had her fun with Leo but is choosing herself first, which is super important! As we come to the closing scenes, we begin to see a more confident Maca living her best life — after all, she was a self-proclaimed loser for 28 years who had aspirations of being a ‘bad b***h’.  She finally tells Pipa about herself and how working for her was a nightmare!

And she was right, we love seeing women excel in their personal and professional lives — she had to leave her mediocre assistant job to realize her potential. Lucky for her, Raquel was always in her corner and had her back! Raquel sent her CV to Good Mode magazine, a top fashion magazine in France, and impressed by her social media experience, she received a phone call from the editor-in-chief for her to lead their communications and social media strategy at their head office in Paris. Having female friends like Raquel that love and support you is crucial and I think this is why I genuinely enjoyed the film. It took us through the trials and tribulations of Maca’s life and showed us how she grew. As someone interested in communications, fashion, and a nerd for literature, it was great to see how Sounds Like Love combined my interests AND the main character didn’t suffer in the end — an easy 5 stars from my perspective. Sure, she suffered a bit but that’s life. Oh, and the best part is she didn’t give up Paris for Leo but he does seem to visit her from time to time.

‘Here I see myself the way I want to be, not the way other people think of me. I am proud of who I am.’ Maca finally talks the talk — she goes from being a woman who talks about empowerment, wanting to be a ‘bad b***h’, but still held onto the trauma of her previous relationship to actually becoming self-assured and independent. So, it’s great that she left Leo, despite having love for him, because that would minimize the impact and ruin her personal development.
