Nice dark comedy.
14 February 2008 | by mario_cSee all my reviews

The plot is about an unknown actor (JUSTO SANTOS, played by Pepón Nieto) that has a great talent to vocal imitations and does a small number in his brother's bar. Occasionally a famous director (AITOR, played by Óscar Jaenada) sees his number and likes it so much to the point of wanting him to the protagonist of his next film. JUSTO doesn't want to believe! Finally came his chance to have success! Everything seems to be going out well until AITOR dies, with a overdoses, after a dinner at JUSTOS' place…

It's a nice dark comedy, with a few good laughs, done in Spanish standards. The acting is also fine.
