Entertaining and fun musical comedy in which a grandmother escapes with some squats
14 July 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Musical tragicomedy dealing with couple relationships , family conflicts , squatters or Okupas , illness and old age . One day , Luis (Antonio Dechent) leave him all the women in his life . His daughter (Julia Garcia) , his wife (Marisol Membrillo) , and mother . Her mother (Lola Herrera) gets away with a few squatters (Raul Arevalo and William Miller)and one of them (Raul Arevalo) falls for her daughter . Luis surprisingly learns his father-in-law (Carlos Alvarez Novoa) is the secret lover of his mother . Luis has no choice but to try to find her , and for that reason hires Manolete (Manuel Morón), a detective so original in its methods and insightful . With the help of a picturesque eye private Luis will find her on the beach at Garraf, Sitges.

This amusiing picture packs drama , comedy , dances with intense sensuality including agreeable melodies . A film rich in stories, where love is the central theme seen from three points of view : youth, maturity and old age . Strange musical tragicomedy , the best of the movie are the choreographic numbers and known songs adapted in native model with roots in flamenco as pop as classic and Copla ; recreating the essence of the genre by body movements accompanying sensual melodies and lyrics . Regular and unbalanced, but gaining the sympathy almost at all times . Bad timing results to be the voice of the singers with the actors, it is less achieved . However , choreography is pretty well , following Emilio Martinez Lazaro's ¨El Otro Lado De La Cama" style and François Ozon' ¨Potiche¨ and ¨Eight Women¨ . The picture displays famous songs as ¨Asereje¨, from famous singers such as Andres Calamaro , Camilo Sesto , among others . Glamorous and colorful cinematography by Juan Carlos Gomez , filmed on location in Andalucia , Barcelona, Catalonia, Sitges, Barcelona . The motion picture was originally written and professionally directed by Alvaro Begines , in his first film , being his second titled ¨Un Mundo Cuadrado¨ . He is vocalist of a known Andaluz band called ¨No Me Pises Que Llevo Chanclas¨ .
