Nice
25 July 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film nice to see for actors. It is the basic conclusion . An American historical movie with a Spanish subject under Franco regime , mixing humor, fine irony and proposing,in essence, one of French war comedies, Penelope Cruz in her beauty, a chaotic story about the American film star returns in home country and the director punished by circumstances. The real good point - Carlos Areces as Franco. Short , a nice film, great for energy, less for quasi - improvised story.
