User Reviews

Nice and funny Spanish comedy starred by good actors , including fun situations , entertainment and amusement
8 November 2014 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Comical as well as romantic comedy is loaded with irony , slapdash , humor with tongue-in-cheek , jokes , rapid flashes , thrilling choreography , funny situations and with a distinctly Spanish sense of style . Fun comedy with romantic touches and full of entertainment , humor and sheer amusement . The story takes place in Bilbao , and its airport called Sondica where we find Sergio (Unax Ugalde) and Bea (Alexandra Jimenez) , a couple newly separated . Sergio is still in love with Bea, but they seem to have an uncertain future . Bea is going to Germany to work , and Sergio is going to Ciudad Real. The couple has to endure the cancellation of their respective flights because the airport has been cancelled due to storm and snow ; it has made impossible to have an ordinary voyage . They then have to stay at nearby hotel . Later on , Sergio has been spotted by Juan Carlos (Julian Lopez), whom he doesn't remember , that was allegedly his school friend . As Juan Carlos along with Juanan (Secun de la Rosa) attempt to rekindle the broken relationship between Bea and Sergio . But then it appears Ernesto (Miguel Ángel Muñoz) , Bea's recent boyfriend and the events get worse . Nothing should be taken at face-value ; nothing should be taken seriously .

This is another Spanish typical comedy, it is a funny film that contains lots of humor , entertainment and fun . This is a slightly bemusing film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and an agreeable love story . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous picaresque situations such as sex jokes , slapstick and absurd scenes . The film explores the relationship among a motley quartet and their triangular love story , being well played by top-notch actors . However , it moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable, with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing ; so, the tone of the film is light-hearted and the most part results to be rich in implausibilities . This is a 2010 typical Spanish comedy with the usual ingredients such as enjoyable humor topped with a little bit of original touches here and there ; including mayhem , parties , Christmas celebration and a lot of fun . The main issue about the continuous meetings and ongoings disagreements between the protagonists and their intertwined loves , it is so repetitive and that makes it a little tiring . The picture benefits a good cast as Unax Ugalde and Alexandra Jimenez , along with Secun De la Rosa , Marivi Bilbao , Alfredo Villa , Ramon Barea who round out the protagonist duo . Special mention to Julian Lopez as a pesky guy , he steals the show as as a humorist who often gets into trouble with his new friend so that he can get to regain his former love . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are things I haven't been able to stop thinking about , the movie is played mostly for laughs as the boy get into scrapes trying to score with the girl . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no serious laughter . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , friendship and love , including its amusing sides . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . Atmospheric musical score , adding catching and nostalgic songs such as ¨No Controles¨. Colorful cinematography by Aitor Mantxola , a good director of photography who has photographed successful pictures such as Lisboa , Bon appetit , Butterfly wings and El Juego De Verdad . The motion picture was well written and directed by Borja Cobeaga . He was born in 1977 in Donostia-San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, País Vasco, where usually shoots his movies . He is a writer and filmmaker , known for Pagafantas (2009), Éramos Pocos (2005) and Negociador (2014) and he wrote the biggest hit in history of the Spanish cinema : 8 Apellidos Vascos .
