This has the potential of cheering you up ,even after you are done watching it.
The story is as outlandish as it gets, yet , because it's in the hands of the smart and legendary Spanish director Fernando Colomo, and a couple of incredible actors (Paco León+ Carmen Machi) the result is a very fun ride, with heart, that will tickle you and get your laughs for 90 minutes. And yes, it gets too sweet at the end, but the whole thing is not spoiled by that.
Definitely a movie that keeps that Spanish comedic flavor so distinguishable in other renown directors like Luis Garcia Berlanga or Pedro Almodovar. You'll be left with a smile on your face after experiencing this.
