Bad movie
30 November 2016 | by acagencat-63672See all my reviews

The expression "dispensable", or "waste of time" when something you do not like, and when the thing gets to much, "disaster." But the "agony" is not usual in your articles, and less a criticism in that you really saw it horrible watching this movie and that you did not leave the screening room because you wanted to be responsible with your obligation to make the criticism Did you write immediately after seeing it? Because reading the review, you have pitied me!.

And more striking is the way you expressed yourself after reading the interview they did to Trueba in El Mundo, with the petite who launched "The only thing I can say is that what they have attacked, they should think they are doing a Harm to their country, and then they should think that they pass and the cinema does not. " Curious after the "I have never felt Spanish, nor five minutes of my life".

I think Trueba already knows what he's done and he's putting on the patch before the wound. And I think that you will not be the only one who is going to criticize this film hard, which for what I am reading, does not have much to defend.

(Sorry for my English)
