Lively but mainly laughless comedy with a lot of gags that remind you "it's only a movie"
14 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone is throwing eggs at the superstitious Concha, and it could be anyone, including her scientist daughter-in-law or the taxi driver with whom she has fallen in love.

"Plaff!" (the title refers to the splat sound of the eggs) is an ineptly-made, micro-budgeted comedy which makes light of its own ineptitude and low budget – resulting, unfortunately, in only one or two funny gags. Happily, the actors commit to their characters even while facing the camera crew in the mirror, confronting a crew member with a clapboard, or screaming at someone off-camera for a necessary prop. It's also interesting to see how much fun director Juan Carlos Tabío dares (or is allowed) to poke at Cuba's bureaucracy and general living conditions.
