fun movie, 30 January 2006
Author: daniel Carbajo López from Barcelona, Spain

We're in Asturies, top of the north of Spain. A very rich land with coal mines, excellent fishing and incredible sceneries...but there's a time of recession. The mines are closing and the people, just living because they are subsidized, are collapsing down. But suddenly the grandfather dies, who was the pensioner, the only money that gets into the family. And they need that the grandfather must stay alive. That's it to say: everyone must act as if the grandfather is alive to continue living, which will provoke some stupid and funny incidents. The movie has been shot in outside sets and using a funny asturian accent, which is the equivalent (more or less) between a new yorker and someone from South Virginia, or between a londoner and someone from the Scotish Highlands. Funny movie on its funny way. It quite deserves to watch it. The acting is not quite good, but the movie doesn't demand more, good for a Saturday afternoon and to laugh a little
