Storyline

Longtime friends Angel and Edu share a flat. Angel is a pretty boy, but a very straight arrow sort of young man. He's planning his upcoming wedding. As the wedding date approaches, Edu - a punk rocker and jealous friend, tries to stop the ceremony in several ways; apparently unwilling to lose his long time flat mate. Meanwhile, in the flat downstairs, the young lesbian couple, Txell and Aina are in the midst of a crisis. They share the apartment with Elena, a talky, unbearable hetero who irritates everyone. Elena is looking for love and is attracted by the mystic Oscar, recently returned from India, and who'll become Edu's room mate after Angel's departure. However, Oscar does not correspond Elena's feelings and advances. Oscar is actually interested in Aina. Will Aina fall to Oscar's charms and leave Txell? Is Edu jealous and opposed to Angel's wedding just out of platonic friendship? Written by Guy33134

Looks a lot like filmed theater
22 August 2004 | by (Vitoria, Spain) – See all my reviews

There is a very common problem when a theatrical play is adapted to the screen: the eventual result is more like filmed theater than cinema strictly speaking. This is precisely the case with "Todo me pasa a mi", which is a poor film adapted from a possibly nice play (I haven't seen the stage version).

Visually speaking, it's pure theater, and so are the dialogue and performances. Maybe screenwriter/director Miquel García Borda should have tried to enrich the film by adding some more cinematic effects, instead of filming it with just a few actors in a very limited number of settings. Pieces of dialogue that are considered normal in theater are puzzling in cinema, and so are some of the grandiloquent performances.

These considerations aside, "Todo me pasa a mí" is nice enough plotwise, and some of the characters are very interesting. That is why I thought the theatrical play must be quite engaging and entertaining. In a nutshell, the film is not much cinematic ally speaking, but it has a nice entertaining story and it's worth a watch anyway.

Overall rating: 5/10
