Looks a lot like filmed theater, 22 August 2004
Author: newland80 from Vitoria, Spain

There is a very common problem when a theatrical play is adapted to the screen: the eventual result is more like filmed theater than cinema strictly speaking. This is precisely the case with "Todo me pasa a mi", which is a poor film adapted from a possibly nice play (I haven't seen the stage version).

Visually speaking, it's pure theater, and so are the dialogue and performances. Maybe screenwriter/director Miquel García Borda should have tried to enrich the film by adding some more cinematic effects, instead of filming it with just a few actors in a very limited number of settings. Pieces of dialogue that are considered normal in theater are puzzling in cinema, and so are some of the grandiloquent performances.

These considerations aside, "Todo me pasa a mí" is nice enough plotwise, and some of the characters are very interesting. That is why I thought the theatrical play must be quite engaging and entertaining. In a nutshell, the film is not much cinematic ally speaking, but it has a nice entertaining story and it's worth a watch anyway.

Overall rating: 5/10
