Edmund Gwenn in his last performance
27 May 2006 | by (A Coruna, Spain) – See all my reviews

This title might be remembered as the last movie starring Edmund Gwenn who was a beloved character actor. The beginning is quite seductive: a professor of Physics who had been working for a government in several researches involving atomic bombs vanished. After the introduction we appreciate that the plot is quite different than the expected search for the professor... We are looking the movie from the view point of the professor who is in a small Spanish village enjoying himself with the people of the town. It is an excuse for depicting some of the traditions of the Spanish people at the time the film was shooted and it includes several critics to the Spanish government and way of life of those times. This fact may be a disadvantage for international viewers; however, the movie posses a lot of funny moments which deserve a wide range of public consideration.

This is a funny movie by one of the main directors in Spanish cinema history, Luis García Berlanga and it may be regarded as one of the truly Spanish cinema classics.
