Luis García Berlanga
José Luis López Vázquez,
Get hold of it if you can. Best vampires movie ever without even showing any teeth...
If you thing you are committed to your work, see the protagonist of this movie.
The director had to adapt to stern constrains in number of characters and locales and still he came up with a modern classic, catching the spirit of the "movida madrileña" ( a musical an cultural boom in Madrid eighties) and providing a metaphor for the trail of wasted talent this outburst leave, because of drugs, diversion and basic human frailty. In my personal top 5 Spanish movies of all time.
