Did You Know?


The main part of Ramón Yarritu was written for Ramón Barea. The character was named Ramón after him. Producers Pedro Almodóvar and Esther García wanted a famous actor for the role, and finally was played by Antonio Resines. However, Barea played the character of the Blind Old Man. See more »

A lot of Spanish local jokes in an (im)probable future
30 December 2002 | by rsnunezSee all my reviews

The problem with Acción Mutante, if any, is that it is packed with a lot of local jokes that make little or no sense outside of Spain and some Spanish speaking countries. Perhaps that is why the movie suffers in the second half. However, I think is playful and interesting.
