This is a modestly paced film which suits the character of its main protagonist, Alejandro, the service driver, (sort of, but not quite, a taxi driver, apparently). It sits in the comedy genre but the comedy is of a gentle and knowing kind.

Anyone who has ever dabbled in amateur rock should check it out just for the gags surrounding 'Piranha' and his CD.
