Spanish comedy with humor , fun , entertaining events and ordinary actors
12 January 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

¨El Penalti Más Largo Del Mundo" or "The Longest Penalty Shot in the World" is starred Fernando (Fernando Tejero , when he was training he had to go to hospital because his kidney was bleeding) , a whole slack who spontaneously has to stand-in the definitive match that can grant his football team the victory in the league , as he is the substitute goalkeeper who must stop the final goal . Meanwhile , his coach called Santos (Carlos Kaniowsky) attempts to teach him and training to stop the goals . As the final penalty is postponed for a week, during which takes place absurd situations , silly events , and he falls in love with coach's daughter (Marta Larralde) .

This comedy contains social customs , lots of humor , entertainment and amusement . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining situations , giggles , emotion and a love story . 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 . When the trailer was shown on cinemas, most of the public thought it was the second part of Días De Fútbol. The flick gives a short description about people lives of middle and lower class from suburbia and barrios . You didn't expect to like because of the title, but it is really barely about Fútbol, and more about the players of one particularly clumsy team of friends. This is a typical Madrid comedy of the 2000s with the usual ingredients as enjoyable humor , social habits , relationships among people and , of course , dealing with football . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . The main issue about the delayed penalty is so repetitive and that makes it a bit boring and the most part results to be rich in absurdities and implausibilities . A well acted, so so crafted, movie that should be considered as a return in form to the typical Spanish comedy of yesteryear . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , with its amusing sides but also including ordinary discussions . Sympathetic performances from protagonist trio , Fernando Tejero , Maria Botto and Marta Larralde . Agreeable support cast gives good acting as Carlos Kaniowsky as Santos , Javier Gutiérrez AS Rafa , Enrique Villén as Adrián , Fernando Cayo as Bilbao and Héctor Colomé as Rodríguez .

Atmospheric and appropriate musical score by the notorious Lucio Gody , a prolific composer who has composed excellent soundtrack such as ¨Blackthorn¨, ¨All about my mother¨ , ¨Fin¨ , ¨Amador¨, ¨Aura¨ and deemed to be one of the best Spanish musicians . Evocative cinematography by Juan Antonio Castaño . The motion picture was professionally written and directed by Robert Santiago , an expert comedy director such as ¨Hombres Felices¨, ¨¨Club De Suicidas¨ , ¨Al final del Camino¨ , ¨Solo Para Dos¨ , many of them starred by his fetish actor , Fernando Tejero .
