Did You Know?

Factual errors: When first introduced, Krilenko is watching a video of the Red Army. Altought he is addressed as "comrade" and the video depicts Stalin and crimson flags with the sickle and hammer, the music in the background is the modern Russian anthem, not the Soviet one.See more »

Amusing Spanish comedy plenty of bungling characters , movement , confusion and mayhem, 15 October 2017
Author: ma-cortes from Santander Spain

The legend tells a fabulous treasure , a valuable dagger , since then , mean cons and powerful people have searched in vain . Forged in ancient Egypt , Dagger of Rasputin is a legendary jewel that gives almost absolute power to its possessor . Caesar , Attila and Napoleon were some of their illustrious owners . The track jewel is lost in Russia, with the death of its last owner , the mad monk Rasputín who was killed by Prince Yuppusoff and thrown into the river . But suddenly, in a Spanish prison , one of the inmates called Araña (Antonio Molero) joins other two delinquents : Jacinto (Antonio Resines) and Papeles (Jesús Bonilla) . These three cellmates undertake dangerous as well as fun adventures to locate the whereabouts of the precious dagger . All of them carry out a relentless search for finding the tracks that lead the dagger . Their risked feats are filled with breakouts , leaks and chases , which will take you to the heart of the deep Russia . It follows in a crazy adventure , a rambunctious race to see who can claim the loot first . As a crazy pursuit across Russian ¨Dachas¨ , orphanage , Kremlin square , Lenin mummy , churches and a luxurious Spa to find the treasure that had allegedly been delivered to Russia .

This is an bemusing as well as nutty comedy , plenty of humor , frolics , entertainment , funny happenings , and plot twists . This agreeable picture concerns a silly quest pulled off by a bunch of unfortunate as well as botcher people but things go awry . As a Russian ¨Matrioska¨ sparks a madcap that rush to find the supernatural dagger . This film is made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a pleasant entertainment and is also pretty darn funny . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly enjoyable . It takes a simple concept , a clumsy band of shameless folks turning into law-breaking lunatics and ruining their lives for the sake of an ancient treasure ; all of them investigating and running here and there to find it . There are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit . The flick interweaves fun comedy along with a social criticism about the Spanish crisis of the 2000s and a little bit of suspense and great amusement . This film packs attractive images , strange situations , swift frames , twists and turns ; but it especially contains catching touches of humor , tongue-in-cheek and irony . It takes a silly premise , a peculiar quest , being schemed , planned and proceeded by hapless people and in similar style to American films as ¨It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World¨ by Stanley Kramer and ¨Rat race¨ by Jerry Zucker , along with Italian classy ¨Rufufu¨ (1956) , a great Comedia all'Italiana by Mario Monicelli ; this latter was a brilliant parody to French production titled ¨Rififi¨(1956) and adding the typical Spanish idiosyncrasy with titles as ¨Atraco a Las Tres¨, or ¨Los Que Tocan el Piano¨ . Sympathetic acting from the bungler Antonio Molero , Jesús Bonilla filmmaker himself , and special mention for Antonio Resines who is identified by the Russian mafia as a carrier of a genetic anomaly related to the dagger . The film is full of familiar faces and cameos such as Carolina Bang , Juan Luis Galiardo as Zadkin , María Barranco as Alejandra , Fernando Conde as Psiquiatra , Mario Pardo , Gabino Diego , and Andrés Pajares as General Krilenco , a Stalin-lookalike , most of them give brief but enjoyable interpretations .

Being efficiently produced by the great producer Enrique Cerezo and Telecinco Cinema . Moving and Original Musical score by Roque Baños . Colorful and evocative Cinematography by Juan Molina shot in Madrid , Moscow and surroundings . The motion picture was professionally directed by Jesús Bonilla , though it has some flaws and gaps , being overlong . He directed in similar style ¨El Oro De Moscu¨ also produced by Enrique Cerezo and a similar plot in which a bustling group will take you to the heart of the entertainment and amusement , including a all-Spanish-cast with usual players as Alfredo Landa , Antonio Resines , Alexis Valdés , Gabino Diego , Neus Asensi , Juan Luis Galiardo , Sancho Gracia , María Barranco , Andrés Pajares , José Luis López Vázquez , Jorge Sanz , El Gran Wyoming , Carlos Latre , Antonio Resines and Florentino Fernández .
