It's not common at all
30 April 2013 | by brainman_esSee all my reviews

Una pistola en cada mano it's a saying that implies you are aware of the situation and trying to make the most of it. In this film, one can relate to any of the plots as it reflects a good script and a good cast that's not very common to find in a Spanish movie. Watching Ricardo Darín and Luis Tosar in the same scene is a gift to my eyes, as we're all watching two of the most remarkable actors there are in the Hispanic world. Javier Cámara, Leonor Watling and practically the total cast are incredibly good. It's probably the director's fault, as the quality of the performances are close to perfection. It's about time one bumps into a good story.

Thank you, Cesc.
