Acceptable and fun comedy being competently made by Santiago Segura and with fine main and support cast
10 October 2020 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Paz, Maribel Verdu, is a 39-year-old woman, an advert executive whose boss while having sex with all his employees attempts to isolate her by hiring an It-girl called Alicia : Cristina Pedroche, a known Instagram follower and other social networks. Paz on the verge of the nervous breakdown visits a TV Hindi guru,: Santiago Segura, but she again loses control over what she does and says, as she begins talking out everything that comes to her mind.

This is a decent film with a sour critique to new systems of communication, social nets Whasapp , instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other means invading the contemporary style of life . Stars Maribel Verdu giving a nice acting as the advert executive losing personal control due to her abusive boss and a recent aspiring young girl taking her position at the enterprise. Support cast is pretty good with plenty of familiar series mostly from television series such as : Cristina Pedroche as the egoistic and ambitious colleague who attempts to take Paz's job, Cristina Castaño as friend obsessed for her ex-fiance, Diego Martin as Maribel Verdu's old flame about to marry Barbara Santa Cruz, Enrique San Francisco as the drunk neighbour usually celebrating noisy parties, Santiago Segura himself as a Hindi guru healer and cameo by Alaska singing the catching song final and brief appearance by Jose Mota.

It packs colorful and brilliant cinematography by the great cameraman Kiko De La Rica. As well as attractive and atmospehric musical. The picture well produced by great producer Eduardo Campoy was efficiently directed by Santiago Segura. This well known actor and director has made various film, being especially famous for his 5 films of the Torrente saga. And has directed other nice and succesful films as Padre no hay mas que uno or Father there is only one and Padre no hay mas que dos. Furhermore, Santiago Seguta has played important international movies as Blade, Pacific Rim, Chica de Rio and National ones as Muertos de Risa, Obra Maestra, La Reina de España , El dia de la bestia and being fetish actor of the Oscarized filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.
