Intrigue , comedy , action movie by Gabriele Salvatores and being set in the wonderful island of Ibiza, 11 November 2012
Author: ma-cortes

Co-production Italian-Spanish written and directed by Gabriele Salvatores , a good and original filmmaker . In the luxurious island of Ibiza meet several people at a funeral and for three days we will know a few : mainly Sandro (Diego Abatantuono) , a fifty-years-old man producing pornographic films and he is in Ibiza to shoot one of them . And he is embarrassing when his seventeen-year-old daughter (Martina Stella) , born of a casual relationship and who was at internal school in Florence , warns that comes to the island to spend the holidays with him . Also Angelino (Sergio Rubini) , ruler of a small bar and occasional marijuana dealer , whose highest aspiration is to live with Alice (Maria Jurado) and have a child . He suddenly encounters a suitcase full of drug and the problems emerge . The third is Xavier, the local police chief who lives in conflict with his son Jorge ( Ruben Ochandiano) , a rebellious and nonconformist twenties.

This exciting film contains action , drama, intrigue ,humor and results to be pretty entertaining . Based on a story and screenplay by Gabriele Salvatores , also Ramón Salazar as collaborator for adaptation who appears as a secondary actor playing Emilio. The flick is formed by various inter-crossed stories and all of them wind up into a twisted finale . The picture relies heavily on the fathers-sons relationships between Italians : Diego Abatantuono- Martina Stella and Spanish : Puigcorbe-Ochandiano . Exaggerated playing and overacting by Sergio Rubini whose problems upset by a sudden discovery of a cache of dope . Acting wise the film works excellently , as good main and support cast formed by nice Italian/Spanish players such as Alessandra Martines as Virgilie , Martina Stella as Luce , Juanjo Puigcorbé as Xavier , Rubén Ochandiano as Jorge , María Jurado as Alicia , Antonia San Juan as Pilar , and the British Ian McNeice as Doug Chandler . Interpretation was wonderful, script, visual, sound, everything about this film is a tribute to island of Ibiza. Colorful and glimmer photography , including ¨split screen", by Italo Petriccione who is usually in charge of Salvatores' cinematography ; however , it's necessary a right remastering . Musical score is formed by Disco-music from ¨Amnesia¨ , the famous and internationally known Discoteque , and songs played by Spanish bands as Martin Fuke and Macaco .

The motion picture was efficiently written and realized by Gabrielle Salvatores .The constant theme of his movies is the escape from the problems of the modern world and the most of his movies include philosophical themes . Almost always casts Diego Abatantuono; frequently also casts Sergio Rubini . Among his most important films are ¨Nirvana¨ , ¨I'm not scared¨ , ¨Marrakech Express¨ ,¨ Quo Vadis baby ¨ , his successful and Oscarized ¨Mediterraneo¨ and of course ¨Amnesia¨.
