After picking Cecilia at the airport, a quick scene shows the van heading towards San Martin Square along Colmena Avenue in downtown Lima; the scene then shifts to that of the interior of the van and its occupants chatting. When Cecilia's friends decide to show off their outside mounted speakers some 22 uninterrupted seconds later, another outside scene from the same perspective shows the van in the same direction, but this time at a slightly farther distance from the square. Upcoming vehicles seen further are the same ones that were passing by next to the van in the earlier scene. See more »
I saw this movie as a child, and felt compelled to comment on it, as it is unacceptable that it has no reviews. But, to be honest this will not be very helpful as I can hardly remember most of it.
The brilliance of this movie is the ridiculous pranks (hence the title) executed by individuals sick of getting mistreated. The pranks border on evil, but in a disturbingly hysterical way. Of course, keep in mind when the movie was filmed and how social mores have changed. Perhaps to many viewers the pranks will seem mild, but this was Peru (a very traditional country to begin with), and in 1967.
Without giving anything away, I remember being especially tickled by the prank with the supermarket, and also the prank involving a coffin...good stuff.
