Fun comedy with asubtle criticism
23 July 2018 | by realart_dsSee all my reviews

A comedy with a very subtle criticism. in moments the movie makes you think that an aggressive criticism will come and with the interest of denouncing the inequality of sex , in life and in church as well as the false devotion, but ends up being a critic as with fear, very limited and with that missing of go for the kill to give it a greater impact to the plot.

this film, with low budget and made by students of the ESCAC, in the technical film, is not all bad, there are very well lit scenes, subtle camera movements, in terms of production and post production we can say that the most successful in this film is the montage, there is no doubt that the music helps a lot to a movie and I can say that the film lack in direction power and satire in the denunciations and criticisms of certain current issues, but the music complements that gap a lot.

For those who are fans or followers of Spanish films, or in their case have participated in spain movies ,will enjoy the film.

As for the plot, it is interesting to see a perspective on the issue of equality of genre in religious live and in brotherhoods, without a doubt the locations and festivities of Malaga, Spain give that visual extra that every movie wants plus the gypsy and flamenco sounds.

A pity that worldwide this film does not have the diffusion that should have, instead of just stay at the local market.
