Fernando Fernán Gómez,
Carolo and Benito are two losers with a loose screw who share their passion for cinema. They've written a script for Benito to direct and Carolo to act, but they also need a leading actress so they approach their muse, Amanda Castro, a famous star whose career is starting to go downhill because of her drug problems and bitter character. She takes them for whackos (which indeed they are a bit) and refuses to listen to them. So then, driven by their determination, the two men kidnap her and take her to a remote house in the woods, where filming will take place, in the hope that her initial hostility will turn to friendship once she gets to know them and their project...

So, you want to make movies? Then you must see this one.
Spanish comedians Pablo Carbonell and Santiago Segura gave an unexpected dramatic twist with this movie... pathetic wanna-be film-makers kidnap a huge star (Ariadna Gil) in order to shoot their own movie. What follows is a heart-breaking story about the distance between wishes and reality, between expectations and talent.
It's hard not to empathize with the characters, and the movie has a few great sequences, but, somehow it is too pathetic. Anyways, I really liked this one.
Just give it a try.
