Romantic and amusing Spanish comedy , utterly shot in gorgeous outdoors from Comillas , Cantabria
28 April 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Nice and nutty comedy starred by Quim Gutiérrez and Imma Cuesta , new kings of Spanish comedy . This is another Spanish comedy romp , it is a bemusing story that contains lots of humor , entertainment , binge and involving three funny friends and their girlfriends . It deals with three likable cousins , as when Diego (Quim Gutiérrez) is left by his bride Yolanda (Nuria Gago) during the mass celebration , the trio (Adrian Lastra , Raul Arévalo , Quim Gutierrez) travels to a village called Comillas , Cantabria , where they spent summer vacations as kids and to find his old lover (Imma Cuesta).

Fun and uplifting Spanish romantic comedy with crazy events , entertainment and absurd situations . Being original and compellingly written by screen-writer and filmmaker Daniel Sanchez Arévalo . This agreeable film packs amusement , slapdash , comical situations , tongue-in-cheek , surrealist comedy including conventional pitfalls and many other things . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly cool . This is a fast crazy movie about the close relationships among cousins and their sweethearts with a lot of fun situations , antics , bemusement and a bunch of very hilarious roles . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion , profanities , twists and love stories . The film 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 ridiculous . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , bad taste , and adult scenes . This is a special Spanish comedy from the 2000s with the usual ingredients such as wild humor topped with a little bit of original touches here and there and the tone of the film is light-hearted . It's an attractive , moving film , perfectly acted and concerning the narration about the relationships among fiancée , fiancés , brides and a particular relation between a whore , her alcoholic father and insane suitor . This is a typical Spanish comedy similarly to ¨La Gran Familia Española¨ , ¨Quién mató a Bambi?¨ and ¨3 Bodas de Más¨ including the customary flavorings such as silly jokes , embarrassing events and close relationships among people . It seems to be pleasantly fun that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever ; an exercise in pure amusement in which entertainment and fun are guaranteed . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and weird and the film races on at incredible speed . Higlights of this film include an impressive irruption of the trio in the village party called ¨Romeria¨ and all of them singing as well as dancing a fun song . On the surface , ¨Primos¨ or ¨Cousins¨ doesn't get much wrong , it looks okay , the comedy misunderstandings pile up in a reasonably amusing fashion and the performance is acceptable . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are things I haven't been able to stop laughing about ; however , it also contains bad taste , abound sexual remarks , profanity and spicy issues . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no very enjoyable laughters .

Sympathetic acting by Quim Gutiérrez as a young about get married when breaks up with his fiancée in the middle of his wedding celebration and in front of everyone . Quim is the recent king of Spanish romantic comedy with successes as ¨Una Hora Mas en Canarias¨, ¨La Gran Familia Española¨ , ¨? Quien Mato a Bambi¨ and ¨3 Bodas de Mas¨ also starred by Imma Cuesta . Support cast is pretty well , giving enticing performances such as Adrian Lastra , Nuria Gago , Clara Lago , Alicia Rubio and special mention for Antonio De La Torre as drunken daddy . Colorful cinematography by Juan Carlos Gomez , Daniel Sánchez Arevalo's usual cameraman . Atmospheric and charming musical score by Javier De La Rosa , a notorious composer who has composed successes such as ¨Isla Minima¨ , ¨Grupo 7¨ , ¨Siete Virgenes¨ , ¨Juan De Los Muertos¨ and ¨Carne De Neon¨ . The motion picture was well produced by Fernando Bovaira and nicely directed by Daniel Arévalo . Daniel Sánchez Arevalo tries to mix genres ranging from romantic comedy to slapstick in its ending segment with some offbeat touches . Daniel Sánchez Arévalo was born on 1970 in Madrid, Madrid . His fetish actor turns out to be Quim Gutiérrez . He is a good writer, and filmmaker , known for ¨Azuloscurocasinegro¨ (2006), ¨Gordos¨ (2009) and this ¨Primos¨ at his best . His last film results to be ¨La Gran Familia Española¨ or "Family United" (2013) , it is plenty of emotional and family feeling in which solidarity triumphs and humor despite the blackness . ¨Primos¨ is dedicated to his father : Jose Ramon Sánchez , a prestigious artist , drawer and painter . Rating : Above average . Well worth watching .
