Here filmmaker Alfonso Sanchez delivers a passable black comedy , almost theatrical , though with no originality , in which the main and support cast are frankly decent . Simple entertainment, an unpretentious film with excessive talking and taking a limited concept . ¨Para Toda La Muerte¨ is perhaps the highest exponent , as far as their brief filmography is concerned, of the couple formed by Alberto López and Alfonso Sanchez . It offers interesting elements, it is a fun and light amusement . It is a very amusing , stagy and self-aware film, which develops its strengths and weaknesses in limited scenarios , though with some flaws and gaps , but it is, at the very least, enjoyable. This is a comical and sometimes embarrassing account of opponents who at whatever means attempt to get a vital job , and they will stop at nothing to obtain it , including killing . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly cool . This film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few ridiculous . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and geek and the film races on at incredible speed . A hilarious movie , fast , agile in the dialogues , and there are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit , however they bear a strong Andalucian accents , that's is why being hard to understand them , at times . Alberto Lopez gives a sympathetic acting as José who has spent the various years preparing the exams to become a civil servant in Spain only to receive the news that he did not actually secure his job . This ¨Para Toda La Muerte¨ is made in similar style to ¨El Mundo es Nuestro¨and ¨El Mundo es Suyo¨with several funny and bemusing scenes . Undertaking a criticism of the Spanish society from the personal , social , cultural , and economic perspective , while the protagonists needing all of them , urgently , a good job as ¨State Official¨to resolve their problems . In the film there are strange situations , swift frames , twists and turns ; but it especially contains ample touches of humor and irony . The flick interweaves fun comedy along with a social critical about the deep Spanish crisis ; as well as a little bit of suspense , intrigue and mayhem .
It contains a colorful cinematography by Fran Fernández Pardo . Adding an attractive and lively musical score by Pablo Cervantes . The motion picture was amusingly directed by Alfonso Sánchez at his third movie , being his film debut : ¨El mundo es nuestro¨ and going on ¨El Mundo es suyo¨ . Alfonso is usually a secondary actor , as Cinema as TV , who has played a lot of films in brief but significant interpretations , such as : Ocho Apellidos Catalanes , Ocho Apellidos Vascos , Grupo 7 , Kingdom of heaven , Star Wars episode II , Captain Alatriste , Hospital Central , among others's goal is to sneak into a birthday party. This film ¨Para Toda la Muerte¨ is made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a pleasant entertainment and it results in a passable yarn . Rating : 5.5/10.
