Fun and nutty comedy starred by a plethora of young actors playing weird characters
7 May 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Amusing and funny picture starred by Raul Arévalo who along with are Imma Cuesta and Quim Gutiérrez are new kings of Spanish comedy . This is a fast crazy movie with lot of fun situations , antics , bemusement and with a bunch of very hilarious roles . This is another Spanish comedy romp , it is a bemusing story that contains humorous moments , entertainment , binge and involving a young literature teacher and his supernatural students who died by an unfortunate firing . The film starts in an opening and closing with a prom scene ; at the beginning we see a wallflower boy sitting at the edges of the crowd during a slow dance, soon the crowd parts, and he sees his dream girl, hair flowing in slow motion driven by some magical breeze , he reaches towards her, the two embrace, their orthodontically-augmented teeth clinking as they kiss , then cut to see that he's embracing nothing but air, with entire rows of fellow . As it deals with a teacher named Modesto (Raul Arévalo) with paranormal abilities . Modesto sees dead people and he has spent amount of money in psychiatrists . Regular visits to a psychiatrist only seem to make matters worse , not least because Modesto is distracted by his fantastic apparitions (Luis Varela) . He is fired from several schools , but his luck changes when he gets a job in Monforte High School . There Modesto helps a group of five ghosts graduate high school . They are the followings : Pinfloy (Javier Bódalo) , Ángela (Anna Castillo) , Dani (Alex Maruny), Jorge (Jaime Olías) and Mariví (Andrea Duro) . Meanwhile , Modesto falls in love for the school Principal (Alexandra Jimenez) . Hell is being stuck in high school, forever.

Nice and uplifting Spanish romantic comedy with crazy events , amusement and absurd situations . This entertaining film packs amusement , fantastic events , slapstick , 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 . Ghost Graduation ('Promoción Fantasma') revisits the American high-school movies of the Eighties, emerging like a cross between Ghostbusters and The Breakfast Club with more than just a dance montage as a nod to the latter . This is a hilarious flick , surrealist , extreme spoof and gross-out but also is intelligent and bold . This fantasy 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 . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and rare and the film races on at incredible speed . Dirty humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , bad taste and adult scenes , especially on his final part when Otegui/Carlos Areces appears at high school reunion and haunted by a ghost-boy he speaks abounding sexual references . 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 uneven comedy , piggy humor , profanity and grossed themes . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no very enjoyable laughters . The films remarks are numerous and provide silly laughs taking bits here and there from American films such as ¨American pie¨, ¨Porkys¨ , ¨Ghost¨ , ¨Ghostbusters¨ and especially , an unabashed love letter to the cinema of John Hughes for good measure . Our humble, hangdog hero is Modesto well performed by Raúl Arévalo, a high school teacher plagued with the ability to see the dead , rather than realise his gift, he instead begins to worry that he's losing his mind . The picture provides loads of fun here and a passel of cameo appearances as Luis Varela ,Joaquín Reyes , Elena Irureta and Sílvia Abril . And appearance of young newcomers with much future such as Andrea Duro of Juan De Los Muertos and Aura Garrido of Ministerio Del Tiempo .

Colorful and luxurious cinematography by Arnau Valls Colomer who has photographed successes as ¨Eva¨, "Here's the Deal" ,¨Three many weddings¨ , among others . Evocative musical score by Javier Rodero , including songs of the eighties sung by Mecano , Shakira , Radio Futura's ¨Enamorado De La Moda Juvenil¨ and particularly Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart . The motion picture was well directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera . He was born in Barcelona and is a good director and editor , he realized some Shorts and being expert on comedies , especially known for Spanish Movie (2009) , Promoción Fantasma (2012) and Tres Bodas De Mas or 3 many wedding (2013) . Furthermore , he is preparing Anacleto Agente Secreto (in post-production) and SuperLopez . The motion picture will appeal to lunatic humor and absurd comedy enthusiasts .
