Quotes

Alphonso: Have you called the police?
Yuri: Yes. Everything is under control. They've analyzed the letters and they don't give them any credibility. They think it's a harmless guy wanting only to call your attention.
Alphonso: And how do they know that?
Yuri: If he were serious, he wouldn't have written his name and address in the envelopes.

User Reviews

 
A good mad comedy that could have been a lot better
27 February 2016 | by abisioSee all my reviews

Alex de la Iglesia is in my opinion the best Spanish director. Even better than Almodovar and Medem.

He made several masterpieces like El Crimen Perfecto (The Perfect Crime), 800 Bullets, Common Wealth, Muertos de risa, Dance with the Devil and The Day of the Beast. But even more recent effort Witching and Bitching (whose first 30 minutes are brilliant) or The Last Circus (a very personal movie) are better and deeper movies that almost anything else released that year.

This time, everything happens during the New Year eve recording in a TV channel. Outside there is a violent riot, and inside a bunch of nutcase characters with many issues; including an ego driven singer (the legendary Raphael) and a young rising star (the excellent Mario Casas).

Many things happen, mostly for humor; sometimes quite violent or sexual related; but at the end what was supposed to be a satire on the TV and felt short and become just a very mad comedy with many high moments and some low ones. In brief; it is not the best Alex de la Iglesia made; but it is worth seeing it.
