Storyline

Pablo hates everything. When Lucia comes into his life, he thinks she's the woman he dreams of, and sees the solution to all his problems. But Lucia, who is rather manipulating, is just what will make Pablo explode. Nobody believes in the ideal couple, not even Pablo's friends, who live all in couples, and all with problems: Between Ariel and Lola there is a professional rivalty they don't know how to cope with; Claudio lives on Natalia, and none of them feels good about it; what's wrong with Alejandro and Beatriz is just the big age difference between them two. Nobody is happy with his partenaire, but everyone will let it be, maybe for conformism, maybe for fear, maybe for lazyness, or maybe because Everything is false.

Todo es mentira.
28 March 2014 | by lamaga234See all my reviews

I must say that this is one of my favorite couple comedy movies. Reading to the last review, it got me thinking that, maybe, if you don't understand Spanish character and humor, you can loose the real sense of the movie, and misunderstand irony and sarcasm with depressing seriousness. For me, it's what the Annie Hall's Woody Allen would had done if he was born in Madrid. That's exactly what I think.

(Imdb is asking me for more lines of writing): The quality of the production is low cost, just as an opera prima usually does. References to places and characters are very well achieved. Coque Malla was an important singer and songwriter at that time (and still is). This was one of his first movies, and he succeeds more than well.
