Very funny comedy of Javier Aguirre.
4 June 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

" Paco el Cocosabio" (Tony Leblanc), "Cayetana la Gandula" (Concha Velasco) and " Venancio el Torralba", (Alfredo Landa), are three pianists, not in the musical sense of the word, but at the police. The three, have played the piano, or have affixed their footprints in the corresponding police tab. But, without making less to our characters, we must recognize that their criminal activities are second division. Everything changes to the arrival of they "El Tizona"(Manolo Gomez Bur), a former "chorizo" little skillful has expanded studies abroad and returned to Spain perfectly recycling and become a dangerous gangster. At least that's what he and his friends believe.

The director Javier Aguirre, delights us with this fun comedy interpreted with great success by a cast of formidable actors, of which we should also emphasize to Jose Sazatornil "Saza", in a great performance, with his character of candidate to councillor, present in all situations of the script.

"Los que tocan el piano" is a comedy entertaining from the outset until the end of the film, in which there are scenes and situations hilarious, such as that occurs in the Hospital. It is a movie highly recommended to go back to see.
