Mama es Boba, wich means My Silly Mother is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. The story is told thru the eyes of a kid, (the son of the "silly" mother) who has to put up with everything that happens to his mum & dad, specially the fact that the couple doesn't realize the terrible things that are taking place around them until too late. This is a "very, very sad comedy" as told from the director himself recently at the London Film Festival. And he is totally right. It makes you laugh while watching, but at the very same time you can only feel terrible in the inside. The people who is in the movie -except for the family and a secretary of a tv station that hardly says a few words- they are all very mean, perversous and heartless. This is not a movie with the typical "good guy" and "bad guy" but is rather full of "bad guys" and three inocent wonderful human beings. The film, however, is full of sarcasm, of black humor perhaps, but above all, the very sad thing is that is pretty much like real life. If you have the chance to catch this film, please DON'T miss it! Bravo for the young spanish director Santiago Lorenzo.
