Interesting if you think mediocre Spain is interesting
First things first. The movie is bad, really bad. Bad music, full of clichés, bad dialogue. It may only be saved for being a kind of documentary on ordinary (very ordinary) Spain and for the acting which is superb overall. But the movie is really bad. With a script made out of 5 stories so small and ordinary that don't deserve being told in a movie theater. I don't know if naturalism has a place in cinema when this mediocrity has the capacity of draining the soul out of your bones. If you're a sociologist interested in the most simple and boring Spain this movie may be for you. If you're a simple and boring Spaniard this movie may be for you. If you're a human being with interesting things to do or say, please, don't watch this movie. It will only make you stupid.
