A dark comedy that could be better if it were more credible
30 July 2014 | by echanoveSee all my reviews

The trouble with this comedy is that though the original situation is very recognizable and even common, the film development lead it to an incredible point with too much incredible situations. Someone can say that it is because it is a comedy but i don't agree with that. It could be a much better comedy if it were more credible. Someone also can say that is a dark comedy with its little portion of Spanish sperpento. OK, its a dark comedy, thats its best worth. But i insist: it could be better if that guy wasn't so incredibly stupid and all the plot was more like things are in real life. As someone said, the relation between Claudia and the guy is not enough well described. Besides, many subplots and details remain in a halfway point and that doesn't helps Anyway, though it could be better, its a very watchable film
