Storyline

Toby, a cynical but supposedly genius film director finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth - a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

What the Heck?
15 March 2020 | by Rachel_DunpheySee all my reviews

I didn't give this title a rating but if I could it would be the laughing emoji. Let me get out of the way, it has amazing cinematography and sets. The actors were amazing and everything was great. But what I really want to talk about is the storyline of this movie.

I honestly can not tell you the plot of the movie, but I throughly entertained the entire time. I was laughing my head off the entire movie.

This isn't the best work of anyone but it is still a must see movie in my opinion. I would think the best way to watch this movie is with a group of friends too, that way you can all share in the madness of it together.

10/10 for entertainment
