Great, funny, and a little nostalgic movie
3 March 2001 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest movies of spanish cinema with plenty of humour and warm characters. "Bajarse al moro" is both a funny comedy with funny dialogues like "There's something about Mary" and also an intelligent and deep portrait of people who live together in a small flat. There's Chusa (Verónica Forqué), her cousin Jaime (Juan Echanove) and her boyfriend Alberto (Antonio Banderas) and other secondary characters like Alberto's mother (Chus Lampreave, who is kleptomaniac), a young girl who runaways from her mother (Aitana Sanchez Gijón) and a priest neighbour (Miguel Rellan). These people are simply unforgettable and the situations that they live are (as I say above) both funny and insightful. A scene: When Alberto shoots accidentally to Jaime, and the priest drives to the hospital. I give this movie a 9 out of 10 and recommend it to everybody.
