Un, dos, tres, al escondite inglés, it’s a film emerged from the heat of the pop and psychedelic wave of the 60s. The hilarious plot runs around a group of trendy kids, who own a record store and start a mission to boycott the spanish participation in a popular international song festival. This entertaining parody is a compendium of short music clips featuring the most popular Spanish bands of the 60s such as Los Pop Tops, Los Angeles, Los Beta, Los Buenos, Formula V, Henry y los Seven, Los Iberios, Ismael, Los Mitos… A funny, clever, psychedelic portrait of a generation still constrained by the fascist system of the time. This film was the the only feature besides Rapture (Arrebato) by damn genious Ivan Zulueta. —Elena Gallen
