Simple and plain Spanish comedy about a quartet of old people who pull off a twisted robbing
29 October 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Amusing but average and confusing Comedy about a group of retired and botcher people who scheme a big theft . They are José Luis Gil, Manuel Manquiña , Álvaro de Luna and Luisa Gavasa . Through the film is described several distresses and misfortunes to carry out their plan, lousily proceeded by the bungling outfit in fits and starts . As they attempt to rob a valuable sculpture at the museum Pablo Gargallo in Zaragoza : The mask of Quiqui of Montparnasse . To get financing for the robbing they deal with a chinese vendor with surprising and fateful consequences .

In the film they are giggles , irony , several flashbacks , comedy , surrealist images about the sympathetic duo Salvador Dali/Harpo Marx and brief action at the end when happens the hold-up . From the start to finish the good mood and humor are continuous .Passable screenplay, though middlingly paced, by director himself, being based on a novel titled Hilo Musical para una Piscifactoria by Juan Luis Saldaña . The highlight and great clímax, of course , is the final heist executed slightly and quickly , with no much complications , including stop motion images .The picture benefits itself of a great cast formed by the following ones : Manuel Manquiña , a prestigious secondary who has played a lot of films as Entre las piernas , Mararia , Un rey en La Habana, , Bajo aguas tranquilas , Cosa de Brujas , and Tv series as Manolito Gafotas , Aguila Roja . José Luis Gil who has perfomed various Tv series as Lo que se avecina, Aquí no hay quien viva . Luisa Gavasa who won a Goya Award to best supporting actress for La Novia . Special mention for the veteran Álvaro de Luna in his final film , working from the Sixties in all kinds of genres as Spaghetti, Thrillers , Terror , action , drama , such as Navajo Joe , El Gran Amor del Conde Dracula , La Cera Virgen , El Monumento, El Clan de los Inmorales , El cabezota, El Puente, Luna de Lobos , Dulces horas and outstanding in famous series Curro Jimenez as El Algarrobo .

It contains a colorful cinematography by Adrián Barcelona , filmed on location in Zaragoza , Castejon de Monegros , Huesca and Madrid . Atmospheric and adequate Musical Score by Luis Gimenez . The motion picture was regularly written , produced and directed by Ignacio Estaregui . Ignacio directed some Shorts and his first film titled : Justicia , resulted to be the last one of the notorious actor Alex Angulo , while this Miau turned to be the last one of the veteran actor Álvaro de Luna who recently passed away . Rating 5/10. A film only for Spanish cinema fans .
