Javier Bardem was considered for the role of Pako, but was committed to Dance with the Devil (1997) for the same dates. He eventually ended up making a cameo appearance as the star of a soap opera shown on a TV set. Viggo Mortensen was also considered for Pako, but his Argentinean accent was deemed not suitable for a character who had to sound genuinely Spanish. See more »
[why Pako is in shock and his nose is bleeding]
It's probably the excess of cocaine, or the lack of sleep. The human body is a mystery!

This film contains many bizarre elements of spanish life including what single men get up to, and especially whorehouses, a central feature of this film. Higlights of this film include Juantxo's dad who is a spanish TV chef, Santiago Segura as a child molesting politician, and Rabal as Villambrosa, afflicted by the portuguese's voodoo magic. The film is also permeated with the bizarre relationship between the spanish and portuguese, and both countries love of football. My particular favourite is the galician whorehouse manager, Manuel Maquina, whose henchmen walk around the brothel in Deportivo shirts and listens to english for business tapes in his bar. Apart from this odd things about this film include american cars.
