Rare and puzzling Spanish film , full of cameos and formed by several surrealist sketches
Strange film plenty of absurd sketches in Luis Buñuel style . The picture results to be a succession of comic as well as dramatic episodes interwoven with no order , neither sense . The movie has drama , comedy , science fiction , fantasy and amazing situations .
The yarn has some funny as well as attractive sequences , but being uneven . It is filled with insanity , plenty of crazy gags , confusion and turns out to be a long puzzle . Relentlessly absurd and outrageous stories with some good moments here and there , though results in a dull and tiring flick . It suffers from staginess and comedy plotting but gives the zany players plenty of comic elaboration , embarrassing happenings and ridiculous incidents . Enough gags and dramatic deeds for give several movies ; however , it doesn't work and creates a ¨Deja Vu¨ sensation to an astonished spectator . Brief acting by a lot of known actors , forming a real Spanish all-star-cast , such as Antonio De La Torre , Julian Villagran , Maribel Verdu , Alberto San Juan , Tristan Ulloa , Diego Martín , Gustavo Salmeron , Eulàlia Ramon , Raul Arévalo , Silvia Marso , Robert Alamo , Jose Angel Egido , Eduardo Fernández , Javivi , Adriana Ugarte , Irene Escolar , Jorge Bosch , ,¨Torrente¨'s Santiago Segura and many others . There even appears Juan Carlos Monedero , a politician leader from ¨Podemos¨ and giving a philosophical speech . Photography of the film is made in documentary style and by means of video camera , being realized by the same filmmaker Juan Cavestany . The best part of the film seems to be its final when is presented numerous actors under musical score by Nick Powell Aaron Rux
The motion picture produced by the great producer, Enrigue Lopez Lavigne , Belen Atienza was regularly written and directed by Juan Cavestany . He is a writer and director, known for screenplays as ¨Guerreros¨ ,¨Lobos De Washington¨ , ¨Salir Pitando¨ , ¨El Caso Wanninkhof¨ and he has directed a few films such as ¨Asombros Mundo De Borjamari Y Pocholo¨ , ¨Dispongo De Barcos¨and this ¨Gente En Sitios¨.
