It's an excellent combination of comedy and tragedy., 19 March 2011
Author: psagray from Spain

This is Comic biopic of Spanish Manuel Vázquez (Madrid, 1930-Barcelona, 1995), creator of popular comic "La familia Cebolleta" or "Anacleto, Agente secreto". It is Barcelona, 60's. Vazquez is spring and life breathes his lungs. His characters succeed in Comics Editorial Bruguera. Meanwhile, the best comic illustrator in Spain enjoys what he wants when he wants to pay nothing, dodging their creditors wit, mockery and esteem to their bosses and collecting a happily married family after another. Until a grey bookkeeper of his editorial decides that he must abide by the rules like everyone else. It will not be easy: for the brilliant artist, life is a party to be strained if you are not invited.

"El gran Vázquez ", tells the adventures and misadventures of a cute and great rascal, alternately comic moments of his life (the scams that made with unusual ease) with other really pathetic (as we see in some unsavory places). At Madrid illustrator masterfully interpreted and contained by Santiago Segura way he plays very good in his character, achieving one of his best performances. Segura is the main protagonist (shown in 99% of the frames) and has the difficult task of achieving a scoundrel you liked, and even get you to move in the most tragic and hard for those who spend his character.

Segura is well accompanied by the excellent work performed by two good actors of Spanish cinema, Álex Angulo and Enrique Villar, not to mention the interesting Mercè Llorens. They are three high-level actors.

Nice comedy that begins slowly vanished dive into a story, and raw (why not) anxious. With a few strokes of humor that serve as respite, the film stands on its own with a good script, with a stunning performance of Santiago Segura undervalued and a good characterization of Francisco Ibáñez.

The film does not decline at any time and always want to know what the next occurrence of this hustler. In short, a highly recommendable film, which contains fun and reveals the life of one of the best Spanish comic artists.
