EXCELLENT TWISTED COMEDY
9 April 2018 | by abisioSee all my reviews

"Perfectos Desconocidos" is a Spanish remake of the Italian movie "Perfetti sconosciuti"; both have been very successful in its own country; but as I am from Spanish origin; I prefer the Spanish one. Seven friends everyone with his own crisis reunites for a dinner in a house. Somebody proposes a game; left all cell phone on the tables so everybody can see secrets of the others. Things get unexpectedly complicated as a secret of each person is being revealed. There are outstanding comedy moments and suspenseful as well. One particular conversation between a father and her daughter carriers more tenderness than any flick released in 2017. This kind of movie can only works with outstanding actors; and all of them are. It will be unfair to point on one in specific since this is coral movie; however Eduard Fernandez and Ernesto Alterio are both commanding. In brief; it is perhaps the best 2017 comedy; with the Italian original being the best of 2016.
