Pleasant Spanish comedy with humor , fun , amusing situations and nice players
20 August 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Ariadna (Leticia Dolera) , a trapeze artist wishes to have a baby by means of artificial insemination . She goes to an artificial insemination clinic where Ariadna is dealt with a doctor called Serafin (Ernesto Alterio) . Then , Serafin falls in love for Ariadna . But Ariadna really wants to pregnant herself and have a child for her twin sister Penelope (Leticia Dolera) . This causes in Serafin a peculiar sense of paternity and decides to take the baby for himself from the nursery .

This agreeable comedy contains lots of humor , a love story , entertainment and amusement . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and a charming romance . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing . It contains several touches of humor and irony , especially at the role performed by Ernesto Alterio . This is a typical Spanish comedy from the 2000s with the usual ingredients such as enjoyable humor , social habits , relationships among people and amusement . The characters in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , births and love , with its amusing sides but also including some deceptions . Duo protagonist is very sympathetic , Ernesto Alterio and Leticia Dolera give likable as well as attractive acting . Support cast is pretty good such as Héctor Alterio as Emilio , María Isbert as old lady , María Pujalte as Gloria , Malena Alterio as nurse and Janfri Topera as Barman . And cameo by the same filmmaker ,Inés París , as Natalia .

Atmospheric and lively musical score by Christopher Slaski , adding some enjoyable songs . As song ¨Pobre Serafín¨ being Written & Performed by Andy Changoand Background Vocals by Ariel Rot . Including a spotless pictorial cinematography shot in Madrid by Nestor Calvo (Atomica , Lobo , Nos Miran , Lobos De Washington , Años Barbaros , Miguel and William) , showing splendidly the evocative scenarios, as he photographs almost perfectly the elements of each shot , every sequence , every space . This motion picture "Semen, a Love Sample" was professionally written and directed by Ines Paris and Daniela Féjerman . Ines Paris is a writer and director, known for Maitena: Estados Alterados (2008), Miguel y William (2007) , A Mi Madre Le Gustan Las Mujeres (2002) Se Quien Eres (2000) . And Daniela Féjerman is a writer and director, known for Sindrome Ulises , Montaña Rusa , Siete Minutos and this ¨Semen¨ . Rating : 6 . Acceptable and passable . Well worth watching . The flick will appeal to Spanish comedy buffs .
