Political commentary and comedy in Franco-era Spain
30 May 2000 | by gsharp99See all my reviews

Despite the ominous political overtones of the opening scenes, where two university students are given harsh eight-year prison sentences for anti-Franco graffiti, the movie eventually develops into a comedy as two American girls pretending to be rich tourists in a red convertible become their accomplices in an escape attempt. Franco's chief of security forces, who was instrumental in getting the harsh sentences imposed, keeps popping up in various scenes throughout the film.
