The best animated movie I've ever seen in my life!

I watched "¡Vampiros En La Habana!" by Juan Padrón when I was eight years old. This movie was something different from the Disney cartoons I used to watch. There was sex, good music, violence, and plenty of humor. A plot consisting in a mixture of vampires and mafia could be strange, but it worked perfectly well. This is the type of movie that you can hate it or love it! Yesterday Juan Padrón (the director) presented the second part: "¡Más Vampiros En La Habana!" in a theater in Madrid (Spain). I had great expectations with this movie. I couldn't resist comparing both of them, and in my opinion I think that the first part was less dynamic but much more funny. I'm looking forward to watching "Fritz The Cat" and comment it.
