Spanish comedy by expert director Fernando Colomo with humor , fun , amusing situations and nice players
It revolves around a worker young Domingo (Daniel Guzman) and his friend ; the protagonist, a typical lower-class worker and all around nice guy friends (Antonio Molero) struggling with teen sex . Most of the plot involves their numerous failed attempts to have sex and lose their virginity . Our main character is a cleaner in a mall along with Marcial (Saturnino Garcia) , he meets a girl named Lisabeth (Diana Galvez in her last picture because she died in a crash) and is immediately attracted to her , and he then poses like a wealthy boy . But she results to be an actress with no money in a reality-show , whose love story with Domingo is being recorded by TV reporters (Blanca Portillo and Francisco Maestre , early deceased by stroke at 53).
This is another teen sex romp , it is a fun comedy that contains lots of humor , entertainment and amusement . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and a love story . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable, with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing . The flick gives a short description about lives of people of lower classes in the Madrid slums . This is a typical Spanish comedy from the 90s with the usual ingredients such as enjoyable humor , social habits and relationships among people . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are things I haven't been able to stop thinking about , the first part is played mostly for laughs as the boy get into scrapes trying to score with the girl . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no serious laughter . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , friendship and love , including its amusing sides . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . The main issue about the continuous meetings and ongoings disagreements between the protagonists and the reporters who are filming them is so repetitive and that makes it a bit boring and the most part results to be rich in absurdities and implausibilities . Sympathetic performances from main cast , Daniel Guzman and Diana Galvez , both of them provide a considerable boost to the result . Furthermore , a very good support cast such as Antonio Molero , Joaquin Climent , Javier Camera , Saturnino Garcia , Blanca Portillo , Monica Cano and special mention to Javier Camera in charge of casting , too .
Atmospheric and appropriate musical score by Julian Brennan , plenty of catching songs . Evocative as well as colorful cinematography by Javier Salmones , a notorious cameraman who has photographed important pictures such as ¨13 curses¨, ¨Butterflies tongue¨ , Romasanta¨, Diary of a nymphomaniac¨ , ¨The Possession of Emma Evans" , among others . The motion picture was professionally written and directed Fernando Colomo , though with no originality . Fernando Colomo was born in Madrid and is a talented and versatile writer/director who has made a vast array of often solid and entertaining films in all kind of genres as comedy, drama and one science fiction movie (1985 El caballero del Dragón) in a career that spans over 30 years . Especially known for directing comedies such as 1987 La Vida Alegre , 1988 Miss Caribe , 1989 Bajarse al Moro , 1993 Rosa Rosae , 1994 Alegre Ma Non Troppo , 1995 Efecto Mariposa . And in the 2000s directed Al Sur Granada (2003) , El Próximo Oriente (2006), Rivales (2008) and La Banda Picasso (2012) .
