This is a mad satire about five individuals living in a mental institution. While inside, they come up with a plan to save the global economy and at the same time punish those responsible. The first step is to get out of the institution and on the yacht of the bank president.Written by
The movie is about a group of individuals who met in a mental facility, they all are there because they have committed homicides, and that homicides were committed because of financial troubles.
When they meet they make a plan to escape and kidnap the CEO of the Central Bank to make him change the wealth deal in the world.
What could have been a funny and meaningful story becomes a horrible mix of Funny Games and a sit com.
The cast is full of nice Spanish actors but there is not much they can do with this script and direction. There are some Spanish comedies. There are some Spanish comedies i would recommend but this one is not a good idea, less if you are not Spanish because you will not get some of the inside jokes.
