José Luis is a referee in Primera División, the top tier of Spanish football, who is about to get back to work after months on a leave for depression, and has just found out his estranged wife is dating another man. As he heads to Huelva, turns out there are very high stakes in the match he's overseeing: the home team, Recreativo, is fighting for a spot in the UEFA Cup; the opponent, Valencia, is looking to clinch the league title; and José Luis's very chaotic trip to even get to the game is not going to help matters.

Great Comedy
13 July 2008 | by juanbersonSee all my reviews

A beautiful love comedy, with fantastic actors, (check Javier Gutierrez, amazing) with the football world very at the back, providing a fantastic set for a gigantic and hilarious end. The love story between Willy Toledo and Natalie Poza is sweet and funny. Wonderfully directed, with a great camera work, fantastic locations, specially Granada at night. The director, Alvaro Fdez. Armero, who gave us the great "Todo Es Mentira", and "Nada en la Nevera", where the world discovered Maria Esteve, knows exactly how to combine comedy, love and sweetness with great wisdom, and the result is one of the best Spanish comedies in the last ten years. Wonderfully written by the director himself and Juan Cavestany ("Gente De Mala Calidad", another fantastic movie), it is an absolute must see.
