Black as coal comedy from Alex de la Iglesia that ranks amongst his very best ('Ferpect Crime', 'The Last Circus'). The great Carmen Maura plays a real estate agent who comes across a fortune haphazardly only to find herself the potential victim of the rest of the building's tenants. Consistently surprising, suspenseful and often very humorous. Winner of 3 Goyas that year including best actress.
Un facétieux festival d'humour noir, sur un rythme souvent trépidant, traversé par des personnages d'une incroyable et profonde méchanceté dévastatrice, comme les affectionne notre talentueux réalisateur ibérique décidément incontournable... www.cinefiches.com
This film (thanks to the efforts of a friend from Argentina) introduced me to the wonderful films of Álex de la Iglesia, and it's as good a place to start as any in his work. This film is kind of like Sam Raimi's A Simple Plan played on a much larger scale, and for laughs. A fatuous remark, admittedly, but watch the film; you'll see what I mean.
