Enticing and fun Spanish comedy about young people emigrating to Berlin to seek jobs and fortune
A funny romantic comedy dealing with two young Spanish men , Hugo (Yon González) and Braulio (Julián López) with an university education , they are tired of a country where never goes nothing and full of corruption , funds cuts as well as their unemployment . Until one day appears in a TV program , an individual (Arturo Valls) , an immigrant telling wonders on Germany and its people and both of them excited about the stories that he explains , decide then to move to Berlin to find a new life and to finish their out of work situation . Hugo and Braulio decide try his luck traveling to Germany , it all in order to help their families , as Hugo's father (Javier Cámara married to Carmen Machi) is unemployed person . However , the "German Dream" results a be a ¨bluf¨ and soon they will find out that finding a better living is not as easy as they expected . It begins at five o'clock in the morning , cleaning and serving at a ¨Palma Kebab Berlin¨, whose owner results to be the sympathetic Hakan (Younes Bachir) and wife Marisol (Malena Alterio) and concludes by midnight . Meanwhile , Hugo falls in love for gorgeous Carla (Blanca Suárez) .
This film is interesting to see , because of the bewildering as well as unfortunate situations that protagonists suffer are similarly happened to the new Spanish emigrants , as it is what we had to make thousands of Spaniards in order to earn the money out of the motherland . This is a bemusing film that contains hilarious sketches , tongue-in-check , grotesque incidents , but above all , it especially packs humor and irony ; concerning interesting issues as emigration and unemployment of a lost generation . Sitting in a strange middle ground and the stylishly enjoyable . What we want teaching is the status of some characters who share home in an apartment and working in Germany , and that they want everything to gain profits , it serves them in order to deliver their families . This ¨Perdiendo El Norte¨ also known as ¨Ab Nach Deutschland¨ bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Vente a Alemania Pepe¨ (1971) by Pedro Lazaga with Alfredo Landa ; in fact , it seems to be a remake adapted to contemporary times ; even the incombustible José Sacristán appears both films , here playing a retired old man with Alzheimer illness . It narrates the conflict between the traditional Spanish society and modernity that pushes each time with more force . Fun interpretations from Yon Gónzalez and Júlian López who attempt his luck traveling Berlin to find expectations and to bring to life the ¨German dream¨ . Support cast is frankly good , giving agreeable and catching acting as Malena Alterio , Úrsula Corberó , Miki Esparbé , Younes Bachir . And special mention for the always excellent : Javier Cámara , Carmen Machi and José Sacristán . Atmospheric musical score by Juanjo Javierre , including the classic song and film leitmotif : ¨Mi Querida España , Esta España Nuestra¨ by Cecilia . Colorful and evocative Cinematography by Isaac Vila .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Nacho G. Velilla who was born in Zaragoza, Aragón, where he often shoots his films . He is an expert on comedies and ¨Sitcom¨ , a notorious producer , director and writer , known for his TV series as ¨7 Vidas¨ (1999), ¨Aída¨ (2005) , ¨Gominólas¨, and some films as ¨Fuera De Carta¨ (2008) , ¨To Hell with the ugly¨ , ¨Villaviciosa De Al Lado¨ , ¨No Manches Frida¨, and this Box office successful ¨Perdiendo el Norte¨. Being most of them starred by his fetish actor : Javier Cámara .
