Surrealist film with several known actors , ridiculous moments and embarrassing situations
8 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Absurde , choral and upsetting story dealing with Professor Teodoro (Antonio Resines) of Oklahoma University who along with his father (Luis Ciges) are traveling around Europa on a motorcycle with sidecar when they arrive in a village where happens fantastic happenings . As the priest (Cassen) carries out a particular mass , the Mayor (Rafael Alonso) has problems with neighbours who want to share his woman (Fedra Lorente) , people knows the William Faulkner's novels , while a Corporal (Jose Sazatoril ¨Saza¨) of Guardia Civil has to face strange events . Then there appears some students from American Euton University , Belgian meteorologists and many others things.

A numerous cast plays a lot of characters and forty protagonists , at least . Screenwriter , Director Jose Luis Cuerda tells his special humor in which blends life , death , religion sex and songs . This rural comedy relies on repetitive situations , silly scenes and absurd deeds . Strange happenings occur on the village and surroundings , as men grow on lands , raining rice , a chore of the Russian Army singing and dancing in the church , Mayor's hanging , rare levitation , among others . This highly valuable tale results to be a surrealist comedy with an excellent Spanish-all-star cast as Antonio Resines , Jose Sazatornil, Rafael Alonso , Aurora Bautista , Gabino Diego and a notorious secondary cast as Fernando Valverde , Pastora Vega , Luis Ciges , Fedra Lorente , Ovidio Montllor , Rosalia dans , Manuel Alexandre , Guillermo Montesino , Rosalia Dans , Violeta Cela and many others . The actors say rare and embarrassing dialogs in utter seriousness.

It is a disconcerting flick by Jose Luis Cuerda who also efficiently wrote/produced/directed and resulted to get an acceptable success at Spanish Box office . Cuerda is a veteran professional , being his film debut ¨Pares and Nones¨ a typical Madrid comedy . He subsequently directed ¨El Bosque Animado¨ also with script by notorious Rafael Azcona and based on Wenceslao Fernandez Florez's novel . He followed directing failures as a drama titled ¨Viuda De Capitan Contreras¨ and more comedies as ¨La Marrana¨ and ¨Tocando Fondo¨ . His greatest success corresponds as producer , as he produced hits for Alejandro Amenabar as ¨Tesis¨ and ¨Abre Los Ojos¨, among others . His highly-acclaimed and successful movie was ¨Lengua De Mariposas¨ , it has a rating as better than average and is a beautiful and powerful film . His most personal movies were two comedies with a peculiar and surrealist sense of humor , this ¨Amanece Que no Es Poco¨ and the following titled ¨Asi en el Cielo Como en Tierra¨ but in anti-religion tendency .
