Wordy Spanish ensemble piece is quite terrific
29 May 2013 | by ptb-8See all my reviews

A GUN IN EACH HAND is quite a misleading title given it is basically a series of short films with interlocking story lines and overlapping characters all having relationship dilemmas. Probably the most dialog driven Spanish film I have ever seen, once the viewer gets used to the idea that this is a look at adult relationships, you dispel the notion that there is a gun to be seen sometime. The title refers to having a go each way, being ready to fire sexually, or even a penis joke given the sexual entanglements. Probably about 15 minutes too long as a film, it is however, a modern photo album of interesting emotional dilemmas, one set in an office with a particularly clever role reversal is very funny, albeit quite cruel, but quite right too. It would make a terrific play for a small live theater... but as a film it is like a Spanish feature of the dilemmas seen on US TV in Seinfeld/Friends/Frasier, but a lot better.
