Lovely film
22 October 2001 | by (Hondarribia) – See all my reviews

This is a sometimes sad, most of the time sparkling comedy that describes vividly Spanish life at that moment, and situations that could cause insomnia to most persons. I think anyone in the world could enjoy that film, although perhaps you must see the original version to catch all its humour. I give it 9/10.
