Make it look as though it was an accident
3 February 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Black comedy has to be done properly. In the wrong hands, however, even with the best intentions, it will not have the effect the creator wanted to accomplish.

Such is the case with "Que parezca un accidente" directed by Gerardo Herrero, a man that has had a string of successes in projects such as "The Secret in Their Eyes", "The Son of the Bride", to name just two. He is a producer with a keen eye for good material. Unfortunately, that was not to be the fate of this Spanish entry directed by Mr. Herrero. As written by Fernando Castets and Guillermo De La Guardia, the film does not make an impression.

The great Federico Luppi has some success playing the killer for hire, Arturo. Carmen Maura, as Pilar, has some good moments playing the mother-in-law with a sixth sense to get the right vibes about her daughter's husband whom she knows is two-timing his wife. What does not work is the sudden appearance of Horacio, the son Arturo left behind in Argentina who wants to follow his father's footsteps in crime, only to mess up things royally.

The film starts with a good premise, but the writers or the creators have no sense in what direction they are going. Some sections are dull, while other situations have the desired effect.
