Great comedy
19 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Very funny film about what happens to Carlos (Antonio Resines) when his wife decides to leave him and start a new life... and they can't because they always meet in the strangest places. Excellent acting, a lot of funny situations... but maybe to 'weird' for a comedy: there are a lot of drugs and 'rare' sexual behaviour in this film. So do not show this to your children.

(Like I did!)
