very funny comedy with a dark touch
31 August 2016 | by aarean79See all my reviews

I love the comedies that look like theater plays. They focus on characters and off limit situations between them. This one has it all but it doesn't go over-the-top and keeps the story quite believable. Add to it a wonderful cast and you have a perfect comedy. Belen Rueda is always nice to see, comedy or drama she manages a great interpretation. Pujalte is a great actress, with a very funny role in this one. But the funniest part for me was with Diego Peretti, I must admit I had never seen any of his films before, I didn't know what to expect, but I have become his instant fan after this one. Watch it for some laughs out loud!
