Going to Germany
16 October 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Although never really leaving any Spanish behind. There are parts where they talk German, but overall you'd be excused if you thought they were still in Spain, what with them talking it so much. But there is nothing wrong with that - unless you think there is, just pointing out the facts and what is going on in the movie.

The movie itself feels a bit by the numbers. I don't mean that to be an insult, because it does have quite some merits, going by a formula that is and has been working for other movies. But it's also very predictable and you won't really be surprised by anything that will happen. There is at least one thing with a character who desperately wants to get pregnant, that adds a bit of spice to it all. But even that is played "straight". Still there is comedy, it's light and it was fine (while touching slightly on some social issues)
