A film that deserves the adjective of unique
1 January 2016 | by GothbagSee all my reviews

"Unique" is an adjective that is too often employed to describe many things. In most cases, that is undeserved, but not in the case of Amanece, que no es poco. A tribute/parody of 60s Spanish comedy films, Amanece remains a truly peerless and funny movie experience.

Amanece, que no es poco subverts many tropes common in comedies from Francoist Spain in a very surrealistic and amusing way. Structured in vignettes, the film shows the peculiar lives of the inhabitants of a fictitious town in rural Spain. The people shown are involved in situations that are hilarious because no attempt whatsoever is made to give them a realistic feel.

The film is very recommendable to anyone who knows well enough Spanish culture. The only problem with this film is perhaps what I just mentioned, for someone not very familiar with Spanish culture, this may come off as a very bizarre and probably unfunny film.
