I've seen this movie twice or 3 times on TV, and the situation created in it is really funny: 2 men, 1 old & 1 young decide to rubber a Tobacconist in the quarter of Vallecas (Madrid). But the owner of the establishment (a mature woman) turns out to be much braver than both of them together. Inside the tobacconist´s we can also find the owner's niece (played by a very young Maribel Verdú, a bit ugly with the irons on her teeth). The young man & her, step by step, end up falling in love with each other, and the first reaction, aggressive, defending and very tense, becomes very friendly, and they all together face the Police that came there called by the tobacconist's owner.
In just a few words, this is the case of "the chaser chased" but with a funny and good ending for them all.
Finally, I have to say that it's very entertaining and not as tough or politically incorrect as other titles by this director. If you have some spare time & don't know how to use it, take a look at this.
