This agreeable picture concerns a silly quest pulled off by a bunch of unfortunate as well as botcher people but things go awry . As the dying words of an old people spark a madcap that rush to find some treasure . This film is made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a pleasant entertainment and is also pretty darn funny . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly enjoyable . It takes a simple concept , a clumsy band of shameless folks turning into law-breaking lunatics and ruining their lives for the sake of an ancient treasure ; all of them investigating and running here and there to find it . There are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit . The flick interweaves fun comedy along with a social criticism about the Spanish crisis of the 2000s and a little bit of suspense and great amusement . This film packs attractive images , strange situations , swift frames , twists and turns ; but it especially contains catching touches of humor , tongue-in-cheek and irony . It takes a silly premise , a peculiar quest , being schemed , planned and proceeded by hapless people and in similar style to American films as ¨It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World¨ by Stanley Kramer and ¨Rat race¨ by Jerry Zucker , along with Italian classy ¨Rufufu¨ (1956) , a great Comedia all'Italiana by Mario Monicelli ; this latter was a brilliant parody to French production titled ¨Rififi¨(1956) and adding the typical Spanish idiosyncrasy with titles as ¨Atraco a Las Tres¨, or ¨Los Que Tocan el Piano¨ . The film is full of familiar faces and cameos such as Alfredo Landa , Antonio Resines , Alexis Valdés , Gabino Diego , Neus Asensi , Juan Luis Galiardo , Sancho Gracia , María Barranco , Andrés Pajares , José Luis López Vázquez , Jorge Sanz , El Gran Wyoming , Carlos Latre ,Florentino Fernández , all of them give brief but enjoyable interpretations .
The film is dedicated to Juán De La Rosa of ¨Duo Sacapuntas¨. Being efficiently produced by the great producer Enrique Cerezo and Santiago Segura by his production company called ¨Amiguetes Entertainment¨ . The motion picture was professionally directed by Jesús Bonilla , though it has some flaws and gaps , being overlong . He directed in similar style ¨Dagger of Rasputín¨ also produced by Enrique Cerezo and starred by Antonio Resines , Jesús Bonilla , Maria Barranco , Juan Luis Galiardo , Andrés Pajares playing a bungler group who will take you to the heart of the deep Russia .
