Having been one of our finest screenwriters for the last couple of decades, Joaquín Oristrell started directing his own material in the nineties. "Sin vergüenza" is, without a doubt, one of his finest directorial efforts so far, but it's a shame that such a good movie is spoiled by a dull and unbelievable ending.
One of the greatest and more welcome surprises of the film is the bunch of struggling actors who play precisely that, a bunch of struggling actors. One could say that some of these (Marta Etura, Daniel Martín, Nur Al Levi, Nacho Casalvaque) steal the show from the veteran actors, since Verónica Forqué, Jorge Sanz and Daniel Giménez Cacho are not precisely at the highest of their talent. Rosa María Sardá, as usual, gracefully raises the level of the film with a charming supporting performance as an aging diva.
Albeit irregular, "Sin vergüenza" is, for most of the time, an entertaining movie, but maybe they should have come across with a more believable ending.
