Pleasant and decent Spanish comedy along with some drama elements , being efficiently directed by expert comedian director Fernando Colomo .

The film deals with the relationship between Spanish and foreign youth , including language problems , a topic also treated by the director in other films such as ¨Linea Del Cielo¨ , ¨Efecto Mariposa¨ , ¨Al Sur de Granada¨and ¨Los Años Barbaros¨ . Sympathetic performances from protagonist duo who provides a considerable boost to the result , such as Fernando Colomo as the pensioned advertisement filmmaker who moves into a guest house while becomes involved in silly misadventures, Olivia Delcán as a teen beauty who's the daughter of a sculptor well played by Nuria Román and Miguel Ángel Furones as Fernando's intimate friend .
