Mediocre acting, silly story and nice cinematography in a badly directed film
Average and cheesy film dealing with a witty look at actors , actresses , producers , directors working in soft porn cinema in a country waking up after 40 years of repression . Set in Spain 1977 with surprisingly little violence and really not that much sex for a film about the soft-core porn biz in Spain that sprang up after Franco was gone . Concerning a little girl star named Silvia Conde , Marisol-alike , a Spanish icon prized by Francisco Franco and now grown-up (Nathalie Poza) returns to big screen . She is hired by a producer (Miguel Rellan) who attempts to nude Silvia and another financier (Gerardo Malla) who wishes to make love with her . Producer contracts writer Federico Sola (Alberto San Juan , married to Gloria : Malena Alterio) to shot his first film but the latter falls in love for Silvia Conde . The plot of the movie they are shooting concerns a violent strike of miners , while the strikers are pursued , detained and tortured by Guardia Civil . Meantime , producer José María Culebras gives a precious watch to Director General De Cine (Roberto Alamo) to avoid his film to be censored for nudism . But the main producer is imprisoned when a building is collapsed causing death a lot of people , then the production goes to bankrupt .
This lousy as well as embarrassing comedy contains crazy events , nudism , sexual scenes , amusement and absurd situations . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylish set pieces , including some enjoyable musical numbers . It is a crazy Spanish comedy that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever , though it has some fun and hilarious moments . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , adulteries , jealousy , and erotic scenes . It partially sets the tone of the times in the seventies when had been made lots of films about nudism or ¨Destape¨. The film attempts to give laughs but it doesn't work , resulting in a bad and failed film . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are some brief and no very enjoyable laughters ; however , it also packs uneven comedy , piggy humor , profanity and grossed themes . The picture bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Los Años Desnudos (Clasificada S)¨ by Dunia Ayoso and Felix Sabroso (2008) similarly concerning a trio of naked actresses : Candela Peña , Goya Toledo , Mar Flores shooting films during cinematic nudism time of the 70s . The picture provides a passel of cameo appearances such as Josele Román , Ramón Barea , Malena Alterio , Fernando Tejero , Diego Martin , Coque Malla , Secun De La Rosa , Javier Gutiérrez who achieved recently Goya Award and Roberto Álamo in multiple small roles as Alfredo Torres / Palmero / Lotero / Antioquio / Chistoso del bar / Policía .
It packs a luxurious cinematography by Kiko De La Rica , considered to be one of the best Spanish cameramen , he has photographed many successes such as Lucia Y Sexo , Mataharis , Dias Futbol , Marujas Asesinas , he's usual cameraman of Eloy De La Iglesia : The Oxford murders , Comunidad , Chispa De Vida , Brujas De Zurragamurdi . Furthermore , atmospheric and evocative musical score by Miguel Malla . The motion picture was lousily directed by David Serrano , as no big deal , the flick is not worth watching . David Serrano was born in 1975 in Madrid , location in which he often shoots his movies . He is a writer , known for Días De Fútbol (2003), El Otro Lado De La Cama (2002) , Una Hora Más En Canarias (2010) and is filming Tenemos Que Hablar with Hugo Silva and Michelle Jenner .
