However, a crisis is just around the corner, as life in a small village in the middle of nowhere is not as easy as it seems, and as a result, Luisa and Alberto's already lukewarm sex life is starting to pay the price. On the other hand, Alberto's older brother Juan, has already nestled himself in the warm embrace of the 20 years his junior new girlfriend Natalia, still, struggling to keep up, while at the same time, Sara, Luisa's always single sister, is now dreaming of walking down the aisle with her newfound boyfriend. In the end, interpersonal relationships are always challenging, moreover, in the search for love and a better future in life, one can sometimes be distracted for a while. Written by Nick Riganas

Uneven as well as crazy comedy starred by Imma Cuesta and Raul Arevalo , new kings of Spanish comedy
12 October 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A slightly funny film with entertaining incidents , silly messes and enjoyable love stories . Comical as well as romantic comedy is loaded with irony , humor with tongue-in-cheek , jokes and nutty fun . Spanish comedy filled with amusement , laughs , bemusing situations and ordinary actors . It is a diverting story about family , relatives and their ordinary life problems . It deals with a couple in crisis , Alberto (Raúl Arévalo) , a jobless journalist , and Luisa (Inma Cuesta) , a mother obsessed to have another child . They are in habitual discussion and then go to countryside to live . They have a brother , recently separated , Juan (Alberto San Juan) , and a sister , Sara (Candela Peña) , a woman obsessed to marry herself ; all of them with urban/rural problems and trying to find a solution . Then , jealousy , betrayals , despair and double-crosses emerge .

Funny comedy with romantic touches here and there ; being full of entertainment , humor and sheer amusement . Nice and fun Spanish comedy starred by good actors , including mirth , ridiculous situations , brief touches of drama and with a distinctly Spanish sense of style . It turns out to be pleasantly fun that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever ; an exercise in pure amusement in which entertainment and fun are guaranteed . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and weird and the film races on at incredible speed . The main premise deals with two couples with a lot of problems , all of them mixed up in all kinds of absurd , hilarious and even romantic incidents . The principal issue about the continuous meetings and ongoings disagreements between the protagonists and their intertwined loves , it is so repetitive and that makes it a little boring . This is a slightly bemusing film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and two agreeable love stories . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous picaresque situations such as sex jokes , profanities and absurd scenes . The film explores the relationship among a motley quartet and their peculiar love stories , being well played by known actors . However , it moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind , and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing ; so , the tone of the film is light-hearted and the most part results to be rich in implausibilities and absurdities . The motion picture was written by the same director Alvaro Fernandez , an expert writer/director of notorious comedies . This is a 2014 typical Spanish comedy with the customary ingredients such as agreeable humor topped with a little bit of original touches here and there ; including mayhem , confusion , disconcerting deeds , loving triangles and a lot of fun . The movie is played mostly for laughs , but as well contains several absurd and dumb happenings . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no serious laughters . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , friendship , marriage , fidelity , optimism , and love , including its amusing sides as well as sad ones . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . The picture benefits a likable main cast such as Imma Cuesta , Raul Arévalo and Alberto San Juan . Special mention to Candela Peña , as a depressed girl , he steals the show as a crazed-wedding woman who often gets into trouble with his relatives so that he can get to regain a new husband . Support cast is pretty good , formed by prestigious secondaries such as Jorge Bosch , Kiti Mánver , Pepo Oliva , Miguel Rellán , Pilar Castro , Petra Martínez , Mariano Venancio and Irene Escolar ,the unforgettable Juana La Loca of Isabel series .

The cinematography by David Azcano is luxurious as well as colorful . Atmospheric and lively musical score , adding some catching songs . Well produced by Juan Gordon who has financed some international hits as ¨The Man with Rain in His Shoes¨ , ¨Cell 211¨ , ¨Even the rain¨ and "Neon Flesh" . Being skillfully proceeded by Álvaro Fernández Armero , but it turned out to one a flop at 2014 Spanish box office . This director Alvaro Armero was born in 1969 in Madrid, location where he often shoots his flicks . He is a good director and writer, expert on comedies and especially known for ¨Todo es Mentira¨ (1994), ¨Salir Pitando¨ , ¨Nada en la Nevera¨, ¨Brujas¨ and ¨El Juego De Verdad¨ certainly one of his most amusing , though also shot a successful slasher titled ¨El Arte De Morir¨. Rating : Average but passable , 5.5/10 . The picture will appeal to Spanish comedy enthusiasts , though it also packs bad taste , piggy humor , sexual scenes , profanity and grossed themes .
