A great film
15 December 2000 | by tomaspa-2See all my reviews

I stumbled across this film by chance in 1989. It was shown in the summer open-air theatre in a small village near Valencia (Spain), and I ventured into it without any reference about the film or his director.

I was so amused by it that I came back the following night to watch it again!

Since then, I'm desperately trying to see it again. No success though. I would love to buy it in VHS or DVD format. So this not only is praise to the movie, but an SOS message. Anyone out there knows where to avail oneself of a copy?

Thanks.
