a nice debut
23 June 2006 | by beejamesSee all my reviews

On the 9th Shanghai International Film Festival, this is one of my eagerly wanted movie. Finally I watched it with Asier Altuna the director. He made a speech before the show and try to explain his nationality, but said almost nothing about his movie. That shows the director's confidence about his work.

The movie is quite interesting. It's not the laughing sort of comedy but really makes you smile. Etxebeste the merchant's experience show some of human nature especially something about peacockery. Asier never tried to make any comment on the situation Etxebestes in. And sometimes he even makes the audiences feel sympathy about the family. Because it's everyone's nature feeling and that would make us think about ourself.

It's one of the best films on this festival and hope to see his new work soon.
