Spanish Melo Drama.

When the curtain raises, Three close friends Roman, Andrade and Paco who recently lost their jobs reuniting at Paco's home to go for a match on Andrade's car, since Andrade's car got broken down, they want to spend their day in Paco's home. What happens next is the plot.

Roman was elder than the other two, hence showing expression towards a comedy was matured and we will laugh when he gives a sneering look on the other two when they did something. Paco was a short temper guy who will easily get angry if his plan goes wrong. Andrade is pity among them all.

The Movie was taken inside the home, Cinematography has done a great work. The last twenty minutes of the movie were unexpected and nail-biting. The acting of the three was splendid, Roman's character portrayal, the end was meticulous. The way the expression was given by the three was punctilious.

Overall, the spectators will be confused about the plot and the name of the movie, but it will gives us the importance of friendship and a strong message on gender equality and masculinity (That is the plan of the director)

My VR Critique Rating: 6.9/10

Story: 7/10 Screenplay: 6/10 Cinematography: 7/10 Acting: 8.6/10 Background Score: 6/10

Likes and Dislikes

The screenplay was draggy at first but went interested in the last 20 mins. Message on how unemployment changes one's life was explained very clearly if he is emotionally weak. The acting was engrossing. The humor in the movie was good which goes passably but the expressions will surely make us to laugh.
