Fun and amusing Spanish film about a hold-up carried out by a quirky team
26 September 2012 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film talks a hold up to Spanish museum , the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid , proceeded by a misfit and eccentric group . Since the beginning until the end the good mood and humor is continued . The plot is very amusing and the final has got some surprises . The picture is about a heist of Picasso's paint "El Guernica" . The band is formed by motley members led by the chief "El Santo" , The Saint, (Antonio Resines) . The bunch is composed by a swindler nicknamed painter Zorba "El Greco" (Manuel Manquiña) , a hacker "Windows" called Jacobo Yuste (Jimmy Barnatán) , a dwarf trapeze artist named Pinito (Javier Aller) and the wife of the Saint , a Strip-tease artist (Neus Asensi).

This theft film packs action , comedy , rip-roaring scenes and some nudism in charge of the sexy Neus Asensi . Dumb images , intentionally hilarious and lots of amusement and entertainment . Made on a fairly acceptable scale with good production design and glimmer photography . Enough budget for a Spanish movie and well produced by the great producer Andres Vicente Gomez . This entertaining picture contains laughers , suspense, frenetic action, twits plots , tension and moving action scenes such as the robbery scenes . The film is full of freaks and Psychotronic characters ; it is quite entertaining because being a laborious and intriguing suspense tale with lots of humor and tongue-in-cheek . In the movie there are comedy, action , tongue-in-cheek , giggles and is very bemusing .Interesting and humorous screenplay by Jorge Guerricaechevarria (Eloy De Iglesia's usual screenwriter) and the same filmmaker , Daniel Monzon . Ample and experimented Spanish support cast such as Sancho Gracias as Garganta Profunda , Enrique Villen , Javivi , Rosario Pardo , Enrique De La Torre , Fernando Bilbao , Jordi Vilches, José Lifante as El Gran Shazam , Alfred Lucchetti as Judge , among others . Appropriate cinematography by Carlos Gusi (Torrente , Box 507) who photographs splendidly the exteriors and interiors , being filmed in Carabanchel Prison , Madrid, Palma, Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Valladolid . Adequate and atmospheric musical score by Roque Baños (Fragiles , Machinist , Sexy beast, 800 bullets). The motion picture was well directed by Daniel Monzon , a former cinema reviewer , he undertakes a skill and agreeable filmmaking with some spectacular scenes such as the museum and airport scenes . He previously directed sword and witchery/fantasy (Heart of warrior) , suspense (The Kovak box), and wrote the thriller titled ¨Desvio a Paraiso¨ ; his greatest hit was the prison movie , ¨Celda 211¨. The yarn will appeal to comedy enthusiast and robbery genre fans . Well worth watching
