Sin Vergüenza is a charming, light-hearted farce centered on a famous film director's visit to an acting school to look for new talent, and the eruption of emotional chaos this creates among the school's students and staff. Jealousies, insecurities and egotism come boiling to the surface as everything surrounding the director's visit goes fabulously wrong, and then fabulously right, all while both poking fun at and glorifying "the artistic soul". The entire cast is wonderful, with special mention to Rosa María Sardà's hilarious turn as a drugged-out aging diva, a performance that won her the Goya award (the Spanish Oscar) for best supporting actress. Also Goya-nominated for its rollicking script, Sin Vergüenza (No Shame) is a complete delight. :)
