The sense of humor that shows this is quite particular Short ( mix of absurd humor of Monty Python and Woody Allen, with very sharp and surreal dialogues ... ) .
It is one of the best short films, mainly for the splendid montage showing . At times it seems pointless as it has, but not more than the convoluted way it has to tell the story, told masterfully by Ramón Langa .
In general it can be said that has much in common with "El Milagro De P. Tinto " (Javier Fesser , 1998) , since the story takes place in Spain that same year indeterminate fictional Spanish clichés mixture of all kinds in same place, and mainly by the sense of so old and quirky humor have .
Magnificent, awesome, super, outstanding short of absurd humor kind Francisco Ibáñez, Great Javier Fesser 's work is amazing in the way of making films, so original, unrealistic, is extremely busy and about Slapsticks to the " Looney Tunes ", "Aquel Ritmillo " was fine but this I like more. Few Shorts of Spanish fiction have to be better than this .
