In "Todos a la cárcel," master Berlanga denounces, as only he knows how to do, against any and all.
1 December 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

A good movie of Azcona and Berlanga, but this time without Azcona, and that is obvious. In the film there are good, frenetic pace, good gags, many bad milk and much truth about the soul of the Spanish, but note that the indent not just fit, remain characters and lack some elegance and clarity. All the interesting character of Torrebruno, for example, is very bad expressed in the script.

But you laughing, and raisins a good time reflecting on the plunder, the pokery, the botched and influence peddling, so our, so homeland, so imperishable. Although pass 100 years, "Todos a la cárcel", or in the form nor in the fund, there will not be lost.

Berlanga divides each level in several sub-scenes at a time, each time you see the film denotes details, phrases or comments that do not have paid attention above. The film is recommended view more than once.

Sazatornil and Sacristan are excellent. They were born to make these characters.
