Two Spanish pan-handlers soon find themselves in over their heads when they stumble upon an opportunity to redeem themselves and perhaps the entire planet. The world appears to suffer from rampant poverty, violence and spiritual desperation and the relentless news media force-feeds these images to the Spanish people. A popular reality television show lets the audience decide between life or death for suspected felons, and one of the opportunistic pan-handlers attempts to escape poverty through this raucous and sensational TV program.Written by
Sometimes films can really surprise us. I didn't know this movie was going to affect me so much. But it did. Times have changed (a little) but enough so that the media now doesn't need lots of big drama to make people watch TV. it seems many got used to it and now little things become so important and get such high scores in TV rankings.
BUT, here I will speak about this movie... First the way it is filmed. Some parts are real funny. Others very dramatic. The way it appears to the eye, with romantic hints, horrifying quick images, the TV chain that seems the Vatican, the beautiful scenery and the dark passages. It all shows the inner side of the human being. Jordi Mollà stars and directs this story that we have seen many times on TV. But what happens in the inside of honest people? The story reminds me of what some important artist can live and his or her struggles, the way the big companies treat big stars and the way they treat people whom they made stars born in the mud. Even how the big companies manipulate the people to show them that a simple person can be The Saviour.
And sometimes, the simplest person is the honest one, who would like to give something honest and sincere to the world. But... big companies want their say, not his.
I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know some hidden truths.
