Single unforgettable and entertaining film by J.M:Forqué
28 August 2012 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In the populous city of Madrid, "Pepe" (JLLópez Vázquez), is: anonymous, gray, and imprecise street-sweeper. "Pepe" is a member of that ghostly dawn brigade, to blow hose, clean the streets at dawn. One day "Pepe" find a million pesetas in a bin. Financial need of this poor street-sweeper suggests keeping the money, but his wife "Consuelo" (Julia Gutiérrez Caba), advises that meets their civic duty and return the money

"Un millón en la basura" is one of those movies that deserve modest but memorable being displayed again. With a simple story and endearing, very well developed, entertains and keeps the interest, because as the intentions of the protagonists to the money found are not the same, do not know what will happen in the end. Maybe we reprove some moralizing tone and a final scene somewhat naive that surely is within the standards of the day. But the truth is that softens see the hardships and tribulations that have this family with money. Furthermore, while José Luis López Vázquez in the magnificent cast, not missing another laugh. The highlight scenes can be discussion among co-workers about the money found, and another discussion between Peep's fathers, "María" and "Joaquin" (Aurora Redondo, and Rafael López Somoza) with the two opposing views.

Another attraction of the film is its characters, well defined and credible, both protagonists and extraordinary supporting cast, all excellently interpreted.
