A film advisable to go back to see
27 May 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Paralejos is a quiet village of the High Aragon where never goes nothing until one day appears "Angelito" (Jose Sacristán), an immigrant with a magnificent "Mercedes", counting wonders on Germany and its women. "Pepe" (Alfredo Landa), excited about the stories that account "Angelito", decides try his luck traveling to Germany, but the "German Dream" begins to "Pepe" at five o'clock in the morning, cleaning crystals, and concludes with the midnight pasting posters.

This film is interesting to see with the passage of years, as it is what we had to make thousands of Spaniards in order to earn the money out of the motherland. It narrates the conflict between the traditional Spanish society and modernity that pushes each time with more force. What we want teaching is the status of some characters who share home in a pension and working in Germany, and that they want everything to gain serves them in order to return to Spain.

"Vente a Alemania, Pepe", is a acid and comical criticism of the situation of much Spaniards for more than 30 years, looking for "El Dorado" outside its borders. It could have been cruel and ludicrous, but its magnificent and unforgettable director Pedro Lazaga makes for a comedy where dreams truncated to have a good house and a car Mercedes, become a slave labour, in a foreign country where they do not understand the people when he speaks. Its director tries mixing both the comedy as the drama.

The authentic Spanish style is to get a dramatic situation, or sad, and present it with a dose of humour, with major players who know vocalize, as its formidable protagonist Alfredo Landa, or the always extraordinary José Sacristán. A great actor of enormous quality Antonio Ferrandis accompanies them, he with his character represents the perfection that great tragedy that is the exile, feel abroad in all parties.

As a good film of the time the actors are those who managed to brilliance to the characters that interpret for the film go ahead
