Easy-watching film
15 May 2007 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Serafín is a strict-obsessed with order doctor that works in a artificial insemination clinic. When he meets Ariadna, a crazy trapezist, he must inseminate her, but, due to destiny, he must use his own semen, which will cause to born in him an unusual (for him) sense of paternity, which, being totally inefficient in manners with people, will cause a bunch of theoretically funny situations (well, there's someone that is funny). The plot is silly and absurd, but it is not upsetting and the actors make a decent job in their lack of logic. Many things happen because its a movie, but its a kind of Spanish absurd comedy in the style of "Father of the bride": an ingenious comedy that only wants you to relax during 90 min and make you smile a little. It's pleasant to see, but it is not very good.
