A great movie
2 October 2002 | by (Seville, Spain) – See all my reviews

It's really a great movie. Very funny. Show the decadence of the spanish society of the seventies. You can find very funny characters, all of them caricatures of the "spanish way of life...". The problem is that you have to know well the spanish society to understand the jokes.
