Crossed this film unexpectedly on TV, and was nicely surprised. On his theatrical release, reviews were very poor, and, I feel, totally unmerited. It's a comedy with a couple of very original turning points, and Carmen Maura does a superb job as the energetic cook that wants to force her man, on a weekend leave from jail, to flee to Brazil with her. He wants to return to jail but she has a thorough plan...that backfires completely in a few minutes. They are forced to improvise. They hijack a rich young couple of a doctor (Eduardo Noriega) and spouse (Natalia Verbecke) and take them in a road trip that begins with hostility and finalizes with a strong understanding among them. Entertaining and well worth watching, Carmen Maura and Natalia Verbeke are in good form, Noriega does a good Job, specially considering he is not too often seen playing comedy, and Jordi Bosch as, Maura's husband is also correct.The production is over the average Spanish stuff, and although the direction is not brilliant, the results are entertaining.
