Paco Martínez Soria
16 August 2001 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

This is for me, the best film of Paco Martínez Soria, who create a typical spanish character. With lot of comedy moments, the film carry you to the life in the middle of the past century in Spain, with problems, new ideas, but with the great comedy touch of Paco Martínez Soria. It's a great film to see.
