Coral comedy with an excellent interpretation by Sazatornil.
30 August 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Coral comedy that revolves around the curious and friendly professional relationship that develops between "Lorenzo" (Antonio Resines), a forty in unemployment and "Don Tadeo" (José Sazatornil), a rich old homosexual poet who lives in rents. Everything turns upside down the overnight because of some compromising photographs, an unexpected funeral, a charming hustler, a theft of jewelry, a blond teenager like beer, some coupons for soup, a contender for the Nobel Prize that "makes the Swede," a very emancipated daughter, a friend sad and a little plot on the outskirts of Madrid.

Most notable is the excellent performance of one of the great Spanish actors as Sazatornil, and good overall performance in the rest of the cast. It is an adaptation by Rafael Azcona of the novel "Diario de un jubilado" by Miguel Delibes, with a screenplay that it could make a great movie but failed.
