Pleasant Spanish comedy plenty of humor , twists , fun scenes and mayhem
15 June 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Funny and enjoyable screwball farce well shot in Madrid by the great filmmaker Fernando Trueba . Oscarized director Fernando Trueba , also writes the interesting and bemusing script based on the play by John Chapman and Ray Cooney . "Be Wanton and Tread No Shame" International title or "Move Over Mrs. Markham" deals with a bewildering farce starred by Paco Barroso (Santiago Ramos) and Fernando (Antonio Resines) , both of whom are owners of a children's novel publishing company about to go bankrupt . Then Paco has arranged through unorthodox means to hire the country's best-selling novelist , Adela Mora (Chus Lampreave) . The evening of the official signing , Paco asks for his colleague to let him utilize his home for a love tryst while Fernando wines and dines Adela . At the same time , Paco's spouse , Carmen (Carmen Maura) , will be taking her lover soldier (Pirri) to Rosa's (Ana Belen) apartment . From here troubles start , and things go awry , as Paco attempts to get rid of Silvia (Verónica Forque) , his secretary , and her wife Carmen . In order to solve the problems Paco decides to invent his own strategies . In addition , Fernando thinks Rosa is cheating on him with Oscar (Guillermo Montesinos) , who thinks Fernando is homosexual and having an affair with his pal , while the young lover thinks his sweetheart is a whore when is actually the professional called Raquel (Bibiana Fernández) who has a sexual meeting with Fernando (Resines) .

Earthy as well screwball comedy with amusing elements , antics , entertaining , contrivances , twists and turns ; including engaging performances , adequate set design and being delightfully filmed . ¨Se Infiel no Mires Con Quien¨ results to be other of the innumerable stories to deal with twisted loves , being developed in mirth , lively and vital style . An agreeable tale plenty of silly moments , moving feelings and fun finale . It is a light , wistful crazy comedy , easy to watch , and easier to love . ¨"Be Wanton and Tread No Shame" is Trueba's return to top form, with an intelligent and enticing script written by the same Fernando ; he uses fun situations to give us a good movie in a high sense and intimate sensitivity and that kept me entertained for the almost two hours of duration . It is well set and is as marvelously filmed as it is written and acted . This is one of those rare gems that does not stray from its purpose - to be a celebration of love and romance and humorous tale of some couples controlled by his wishes . The film is light and never somber , no small accomplishment from Fernando Trueba and his team . Filmed in his usual formal and luxurious style , without leaving a trace the joyful themes , in terms of nice developing and narrative excitement . Fine acting by Santiago Ramos , a roguish best-selling editor and Antonio Resines as his zealous colleague Fernando . Sympathetic acting by Carmen Maura as sex-hungry wife . Very good support cast formed by familiar players such as Guillermo Montesinos , Miguel Rellan , Chus Lampreave , Carles Velat , Pedro Reyes , El Gran Wyoming , Bibí Andersen , Jose Maria Cañete , and Miguel Rellán . Colorful and glimmer cinematography by Juan Amoros , one of the best Spanish cameramen , including luxurious interiors filmed in Madrid . Jolly as well as lively musical score by Angel Muñoz .

This simple , attractive and delightful motion picture was well directed by Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba , as the flick is entertaining and well worth your time . His first success was Ópera Prima (1980) following the style of the "Madrid comedy". Trueba had major success with Sé Infiel y No mires Quién (1985) , starting a longer collaboration with the producer Andrés Vicente Gómez . He went on directing numerous successes such as Coarse salt , Year of Enlightment , Milagro de Candeal , Niña De Tus Ojos or The Girl of Your Dreams , Calle 54 , Embrujo De Shanghai , Chico and Rita and recently : The Artist and the Model. The multi-award winner in Spain Fernando Trueba was President of the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and he received the 1994 Oscar for Best Foreign Film to Belle Epoque (1992)and when accepting his Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, director (Fernando Trueba) said: "I would like to believe in God in order to thank him for this prize, but I only believe in (Billy Wilder), so... Thank you, Mr. Wilder!". Wilder himself reportedly phoned Trueba a few days later for acknowledgment and told him: "Hello Fernando, I'm God" . And this ¨Se Infiel Y No Mires Con Quien¨ that was a big success in Spain .
