Worth watching if you like black humour

It is a remake of "Los muchachos de antes no usaban arsénico". Although the film offers some remarkable performances by all the leading actors, dialogues leave much to be desired for they are too grandiloquent, instructive, and invariably end up in a punch line. Characters seem to be English aristocrats flaunting their wit. Besides, seldom would one encounter in real life six cynical characters who are so much alike. An interesting fact is that the film was shot in Guerrero castle. That said, the film is overall very entertaining and, therefore, worth watching.
