mistreated
1 April 2004 | by (Mallorca, Spain) – See all my reviews

If one Spanish film was mistreated by reviewers and audience in 2003, it was Descongelate. It had very little promotion, it lasted very little in theaters but it is a great comedy with great actors. Pepon Nieto plays the part of an unemployed actor, Candela Peña as his ambitious wife, Loles Leon as a former vedette, possessive mother and meddlesome mother in law. The supporting actors are great as well.

The screenplay is fabulous too. The comedy sometimes turns into a drama, sometimes into a horror film, sometimes into something that reminded me of A Simple Plan. But it never loses its essence as a comedy, a grotesque comedy or "esperpento". I wonder why, being as good as (or better) Dias de Futbol, Descongelate didn't get as much recognition or popularity.
