La chispa de la vida

Álex de la Iglesia Spain, 2011

msmichel's rating of the film As Luck Would Have It

Fantasia '12 Alex de la Iglesia turns his scathing voice towards modern media, television ethics and the selling of our souls for a quick buck with this modern satire with tonque firmly in cheek. An unemployed ad man has a fall at a media launch and steals the show when he winds up with a steel bar imbeded in his head. Jose Mota is aces as the humiliated but opportunistic victim as is his wife played by Salma Hayek.
