Disconcerting and fun comedy shot in ups and downs, being a Boat-movie with a lot of fun, mayhem, funny scenes and amusement. Dealing with a big swindle to carry out by a duo of rogue thieves, both of them compete fiercely to get their purports. This film bears certain remembrance to El robo mas grande jamas contado or The biggest robbery never told , also starred by a team to carry out a fabulous theft : painting Guernica by Picasso and equally directed by Daniel Monzon. Main cast and support cast are pretty well. Luis Tosar plays the roguish stealer especialized to rob passengers and Rodrigo de La Serna as his contender who attempts to follow his steps to take the same target. While Stephanie Cayo is the beautiful singer who decieves both, Lucas and Clayderman . Other secondaries outstanding are as folllows : Joan Pera, Gloria Muñoz, Toni Acosta, Alicia Fernandez, among others.
It contains a brilliant and colorful cinematography. As well as a lively and catching musical score by Roque Baños, he is a prestigious musician who has composed notorious films as Fragiles, Machinist, 800 bullets, El robo mas grande jamas contado, Sexy beast. It displays a twisted and surprising script with plenty of turns by Jorge Guerricaechevarria, Alex de La Iglesia's regular writer. The motion picture was professionally directed by Daniel Monzon, though it has some flaws and gaps, being inferior to his former films. Monzon is a good director, a fine crftsman who has written and directed a few movies but with considerable success such as El Niño, El corazon del guerrero or Heart of warrior, his greatest hit : Cell 211, Kovak box, The biggest robbery never told and Desvio a paraiso. Rating : passable and acceptable 5.5/10. Well worth watching. The picture will appeal to Spanish cinema buffs.
