Antonio Resines is the heart of the movie, he's great...
But sadly the rest is not as great. A weak and typical script, really poor acting (with the exception of Resines, of course) and bad, bad description of the time (the 70's, just before Franco's death) and the characters (especially the women).
Is a movie similar to "Imaginary Crimes" (1994), about a poor man, a loser (Resines) who doesn't have a permanent home and travels with his son (Ramallo), always being involved in dirty and not very smart business. The intentions of the movie are honest and maybe this could have been a really good movie, but the poor character development (we've seen this thousand times) and some stupid roles like Miriam Diaz Aroca's make the movie little interesting.
We have Resines, though. An actor who's always magnificent, in comedy and drama (see "La buena estrella") and in not very good movies like this one. Only because of him the movie is worth watching...
