Fun , hilarious and surrealist comedy by the famous and popular Spanish duo , Martes Y Trece
20 February 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Rightly enjoyable but middling and fun-filled , milestone comedy which neatly combines humor , mirth , entertaining events and amusement . Two brothers (Josema Yuste , Millán Salcedo) scheme the robbery of a known gem , the eye of Nefertiti . They execute the heist hanging in similar style to ¨Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible¨ . But a security guard (Tatiana) and other accomplice (Francisco Casares) wish the famous jewel as well , and they coincide during the hold-up . The bad guys kill a policeman and the brothers being convicted of the killing and condemned in long-term prison . His only opportunity to show their innocence is to getaway from the jail and attempt to retrieve the jewel . They get escaped , being disguised as Guardias Civiles and by means of a helicopter . Out of prison our protagonists reunite his girlfriend (Anabel Alonso) and meet a beautiful shopkeeper (Esther Del Prado) to carry out a robbery at a big mall where is exhibited the eye of Nefertiti and at the same time catch the other nasty villains when they attempt again to get the jewel .

This is a slightly funny film with entertaining as well as bewildering events , giggles , craziness , twists and lots and fun . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with some moments frankly hilarious and others ridiculous and embarrassing . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with some naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes and spicy scenes . As the silly vicissitudes of the starring are so repetitive and the most part results to be rich in absurdities and implausibilities . Filmmaker Alvaro Saenz Heredia often uses disconcerting and surrealist situations to give us a passable movie plenty of funny happenings , absurd incidents and many other things ; and that , at least , kept me entertained for the almost half an hour of duration . Amusing screenplay by Manuel Iborra and Yolanda Garcia Serrano ; both of them are ordinary collaborators , they usually write his films and occasionally for other directors as Joaquin Oristell and Alvaro Saenz De Heredia ; they are experts on comedies as ¨Rose sauce¨, "What Makes Women Laugh?" , ¨Why do they call it love when they mean sex ?¨, ¨Mouth to mouth¨ , "All Men Are the Same" . Duo protagonist is fun : Millan Salcedo , Josema Yuste , both of them give sympathetic performances , though they give exaggerated interpretations . Support cast is pretty well , including familiar faces , such as Anabel Alonso , Valeriano Andrés , Francisco Casares and especial appearance by Emilio Aragon who starred ¨Alvaro Saez Geredia's Freddy el Croupier¨ . Furthermore , three notorious secondary actors , ordinaries in co-productions of the sixties and seventies -Spaghetti Western , Terror- : Fernando Bilbao , Tito García , Cris Huerta .

The motion picture was professionally directed by Álvaro Sáenz De Heredia . He directed various vehicles for popular comedians as Chiquito De La Calzada ,Bigote Arrocet : Bracula, Condemor , Papa Piquillo ; Emilio Aragon : Policia , Freddy , El Crupier ; Andres Pajares : Hoz Y El Martinez ; Javier Gurruchaga : R2 Caso Cadaver Sin Cabeza ; and Martes Y Trece : Aqui Huele a Muerto . Alvaro is an specialist on comedies , as he has proved in : 2010 Venganza Ira Vamp , 2005 R2 Caso Cadaver Sin Cabeza , 2002 Esta Noche no , 2001 Corazón De Bombón , 1998 Pápa Piquillo , 1997 Brácula Condemor II , 1996 Aquí Llega Condemor, El Pecador De Pradera , 1994 Una Chica Entre un Millón , 1992 Chechu y Familia .
