Fernando Fernán Gómez,
I really love this movie (The last comment is just plain stupid!!.)
Well,I don't use to write any comments about the movies I like.But maybe some people will not watch this movie because of the only comment about it.And It would be really a pity. This movie is sad and funny at the same time,is really deep.I watch it in Spanish, so I don't know if the translation is accurate, but I'm sure many Spaniards would enjoy a lot the language that the main character use.Benito is brilliant(He is a sweet cheeky)!Is just the great example about the beauty behind some craziness.I really love this movie,I hope everybody would enjoy as much as I did. .....I can not believe how bad(wrong) the other person understood this movie....Even an alien with 6 neurons and some sensitivity would have get it.
