Comical as well as romantic comedy is loaded with irony , humor with tongue-in-cheek , jokes and fun
14 November 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Nice and funny Spanish comedy starred by good actors , including ridiculous situations , entertainment , amusement and with a distinctly Spanish sense of style . The story takes place in spring , Northern Spain , along Camino Santiago and everyone knows that until you reach Santiago, anything can happen . It is a diverting story about friends, and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-agreeable as well as complicated voyage . It covers the pilgrim route from Cebreiro to Santiago De Compostela where at the end of the movie the protagonists arrive and watch the wonderful cathedral . It deals with a peculiar couple, as Nacho (Fernando Tejero and Malena Alterio ,they have been coupled in two very famous TV comedy series , such as : La Que Se Avecina) , he's a photographer while Pilar is a reporter . They're forced to pretend to be a loving couple when their magazine managing editor assigns them a traveling assignment . They hate each other and seem to have an uncertain and troublesome future . The couple has to endure their different personalities to carry out the respective journey . As they're sent to cover the story of Olmo, a guru (Diego Peretti) who resolves relationship crises of couples doing the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela by a huge amount of money : 20.000 Euros . But then it appears José (Javier Gutiérrez) , Nacho's best friend , and the events get worse . In their 6-day adventure trip across Galicia they become involved into love , delusion , threesome and many other things . Later on , there appears her former boyfriend (Javier Calleja) and Pilar is still in love with him . Nothing should be taken at face-value ; nothing should be taken seriously .

Spanish comedy with humor , fun , entertaining situations and ordinary actors . Funny comedy with romantic touches here and there ; being full of entertainment , humor and sheer amusement . The main premise is the following : our two antagonists get mixed up in all kinds of absurd , hilarious and even romantic incidents . The principal issue about the continuous meetings and ongoings disagreements between the protagonists and their intertwined loves , it is so repetitive and that makes it a little boring . This is a slightly bemusing film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and an agreeable love story . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous picaresque situations such as sex jokes , profanities and absurd scenes . The film explores the relationship among a motley quartet and their triangular love story , being well played by known actors . However , it moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing ; so, the tone of the film is light-hearted and the most part results to be rich in implausibilities and absurdities . This is a 2009 typical Spanish comedy with the customary ingredients such as enjoyable humor topped with a little bit of original touches here and there ; including mayhem , confusion , loving triangles and a lot of fun . The picture benefits a likable main cast such as Fernando Tejero , Malena Alterio ; besides , Diego Peretti , Luis Callejo , Irene Escolar who round out the protagonist duo . Special mention to Javier Gutierrez , as a pesky guy , he steals the show as as a crazed-sex man who often gets into trouble with his friend so that he can get to regain new lovers . The movie is played mostly for laughs as the boy get into scrapes trying to score with the girl . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no serious laughter . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , friendship and love , including its amusing sides . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly .

The cinematography is glimmer as well as colorful and shows the beauty of the Camino and the marvelous city of Santiago De Compostela including its impressive cathedral . This evocative photography was well made by a good cameraman called by Juan Antonio Castaño who has photographed various films of filmmaker Roberto Santiago . Atmospheric musical score , adding catching songs that protagonists sing while they are walking . The motion picture was professionally written and directed by Robert Santiago . He is an expert comedy director such as ¨Hombres Felices¨, ¨Club De Suicidas¨ , ¨El Penalti Mas Largo Del Mundo¨, ¨El Sueño De Ivan¨ , ¨Solo Para Dos¨ , and this ¨Al final del Camino¨ ; many of them starred by his fetish actor , Fernando Tejero .
