This movie is hilarious
8 March 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a big and great surrealist comedy , so be prepared and have excellent gags .This movie just cannot be told or spoiled . Nobody can tell you what this movie is about, you got to watch it !!. It portrays and ridicule in a ironic way most of the topics associated with Spain and laugh without mercy at some of the Spanish cultural clichés . There are some flaws but they are minor cause some of the ideas are excellent . This film deserves to be better known .The director José Luis Cuerda followed in this vein in the movie "Así en el cielo como en la tierra "(In earth like it is in heaven ).Cuerda have been the producer of many movies directed by Alejandro Amenabar .
