Rafael is the best salesman in the biggest department store of Madrid. He is a fascinating man; all his colleagues fell in love with him. He tries to live a high-standard life. He is definitely ambitious and aspires to be the new head of sales on his floor. But he has to beat Don Antonio: the best salesman in the man wearing sector. Competition gets harder and harder, until Rafael kills Don Antonio! Lourdes, the ugliest woman in the store, unexpectedly helps Rafael to hide the corpse, but her help isn't for free. Rafael will soon start considering a new crime. A new perfect crime. Written by
Several of the clowns and journalists in the last scene are really fans of Álex de la Iglesia. They were invited by the director himself for supporting him through his official website. See more »
The inspector pulls Don Antonio's bridgework out of the hot furnace on a shovel, picks it off the shovel with tweezers, and drops it into a plastic bag. It should have melted the bag! See more »

Initial credits are written on different papers which are sometimes on the wrong order and then rearrange (Fernando Tejero initially appears as Fernando Rojete; see Dick Van Dyke credit in 'Mary Poppins'). The title initially appears as Crimen Perfecto, and then rearranges to Crimen Ferpecto. See more »
El Crimen Ferpecto is absurdly funny from beginning to end. Rafael Gonzalez (played by a man who looks like the Spanish Dennis Miller) is a fearless lady's man from the moment he pops on screen and reveals his philosophy on life he goes for what he wants, and he only wants the best. That's why he doesn't mind working at an upscale department store. He's constantly surrounded by perfect things and beautiful co-workers. His perfect world comes crashing down, however, when Rafael and his boss get into a brutal fight that leaves a clothes hanger in Rafael's throat and a coat hook in the back of his boss's neck. His ugly, sex-starved, co-worker Lourdes helps him dispose of the body and cover-up the murder, and then blackmails him for all the sex, love, and affection he can give. Just when you think Rafael's life can't get any worse, it does, and every new punishment Lourdes inflicts on him is better than the one before. Pure entertainment.
