Nutty comedy with hilarious set pieces and disconcerting scenes , social critique on economical crisis and anything else
20 June 2020 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Bustling and entertaining comedy about a pair of unlucky and shameless men carrying out an unstoppable search for a Comunion suit , but things go awry , resulting in unexpected consequences . Concerning Rafi (Alfonso Sanchez) and Fali (Alberto López ) , they are two roguish men married to two wealthy women . Fali is married to Cayetana (Carmen Canivell) who asks him for the Communion suit for their child , while his father-in-law Don Mauro (Carlos Olalla) harassing him to separate his daughter . Before Rafi agreed with a Russian gangster Petrov (Scott Cleverdon) a loan to dig a terrain where there is allegedly petroleum , and now he mobster asks for the refund . These incidents are complicated by the sudden irruption of a gorgeous wife , Lorena (Mar Saura) , who suffers a drug overdose at the bathroom . Later on , while going out here and there searching the communion suit , police and GEOs busting at a home , finding a drug stash . After the police raid , the two botcher friends escape with the dope pusued by gypsy people and cops . The two rogue colleagues will try to solve the situation anyway .

The former entry ¨El mundo es nuestro¨ played by Alfonso Sanchez , Alberto López as El Cabeza and El Culebra , concerned two tiny crooks at their thirties , decided to execute their great goal : to rob the Bankasur bank and flee to Brazil in the footsteps of the famous delinquent ¨El Dioni¨, then appearing and impresario charged with explosives , who threatens to kill himself and demands the presence of television to draw attention to his precarious economic situation , as turning what they promised to be a mere bank robbery in a full-time kidnapping with hostages and explosives . This second installment with the same actors results to be one an acceptable and funny comedy but inferior than the precedent one . This second entry ¨El mundo es suyo¨ is made in similar style with several fun and amusing scenes as well . As two colleagues have to get a communion suit , but events get worse . This agreeable picture concerns a duo of unfortunate crooks who swindle and deceive the people at whatever means and where everyone gets criticism where everyone can be identified . This is a comical and sometimes embarrassing account of two pals , a hilarious movie , fast , agile in the dialogues , and there are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit , however they bear a strong Andalucian accents , that's is why being hard to understand them , at times . It takes a simple concept , a duo of bungler crooks , their adventures and misfortunes throughout the Sevilla streets . Undertaking a criticism of the upper class people as well as the lower class from the personal , social , cultural , and economic perspective , while the two protagonists needing all of them , urgently , a lot of money to resolve their problems . In the film there are strange situations , swift frames , twists and turns ; but it especially contains ample touches of humor and irony . The flick interweaves fun comedy along with a social critical about the deep Spanish crisis , including a real critique to economic abuses , speculation ; as well as a little bit of suspense , pursuits and action . This film is made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a pleasant entertainment . And it results in a passable yarn , with a brief message about corruption and economical crisis . The flick packs rapid dialogue in strong Andalucian accent , silly incidents , fun plot twists , tongue-in-cheek , grotesque situations and above all , humor . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly cool . This film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few ridiculous . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and geek and the film races on at incredible speed . It portraits manners of society Seville and the Spanish social situation with a personal and extravagant style , including a wide range of everyday roles and real characters. It shows economic crisis giving a comic hint tipically Andalusia, with a mutual understanding film-audience.

It contains a colorful cinematography by Fernandez Pardo showing a glimmer Sevilla, Andalucía, and barrios as Triana . The motion picture was amusingly directed by Alfonso Sánchez at his second movie , being his film debut : El mundo es nuestro . Here filmmaker delivers a passable comedy , though with no originality , in which the main and support cast are frankly decent . Alfonso is usually a secondary actor , as Cinema as TV , who has played a lot of films in brief but significant interpretations , such as : Ocho Apellidos Catalanes , Ocho Apellidos Vascos , Grupo 7 , Kingdom of heaven , Star Wars episode II , Captain Alatriste , Hospital Central , among others's goal is to sneak into a birthday party.
