Maybe the best Spanish movie of the 80's
15 February 2002 | by (Manresa, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

"El viaje a ninguna parte" ("Voyage to Nowhere") tells the story of a comic actors group: they have to travel on foot from village to village searching bars or cafés where they could act. The movie combines perfectly the comic situations with the dramatic stories of the actors; it's a good portrait of the Spanish poverty during the Franco period, and it's also a good portrait of the hard life of the actors who have to act as extras in some many scenes as they could. This film is directed by Fernando Fernan-Gómez, who also plays a little role; possibly he is the best Spanish actor of his age. It won the Goya (the Spanish Academy Awards) for the best movie on the first show in which this prizes were granted.
