A faithful adaptation, Rubianes IS Makinavaja...
11 January 2003 | by MRBICKLESee all my reviews

'Makinavaja, el último choriso' was an excellent comic created back in the 80's by Ramón Tosas "Ivá", author of other excellent series like 'Historias de la Puta Mili' or 'Sor Angustias de la Crus'. It was featured with enormous success in the satyrical spanish magazine "El Jueves" right until the author's death in 1993 (by a car accident) and generated a cult following that still exists.

The humor of the series, its critical approach to national issues (Franco, politics, ETA, etc.) and above all, its main character's (Makinavaja or Maki) philosophy were the keys of its success. Because of this success Makinavaja was versioned in theatre, film and TV with different results.

The TV-series was the only one that really captured the character spirit, with an outstanding Pepe Rubianes as Makinavaja, plots faithfully based in the original stories by Ivá and most important, a change of direction during the 2nd season (thanks to José Luis Cuerda) changing the usually bad-taste and scatological humor from the movies by a more satyrical approach...

The supporting cast was excellent too: Mario Pardo, for example, reprising his role from the films proved that he was a perfect Moromierda (just read the comics, this was one of the best characters).

Summarizing, a very well made series especially recommended for fans of the comic and Ivá...
