Hilarious and forgotten jewel of the Spanish comedy
I saw this movie for the first time in November 1988 when they passed through TVE 2 on a Friday afternoon. Fortunately I got to record it on video because although I really did not sound the title, the plot promised fun and actors like its director Fernando Merino (La dinamita está servida) were great specialists in comedy. With respect to record movies little known, seldom I have had more satisfaction. Since then I have seen three or four times and I can say that is the film that I laughed more in my life. And speaking of laughter in capital, real attacks of those you can not control and make you even mourn. Mourn with laughter, yes. "La What Arman las mujeres" (The Women cause ruckus) is a comedy of great mess. And it is because, in its simplicity and modesty, get as few great purpose: fun. The formula is simple and is based on a series of mistaken identity and confusion between the characters, but the plot is very well basted, the pace is quick, and everything works great. Some of the situations that occur, as well as the behavior of various characters and many of the diálogos are extremely effective and fun, reaching the zenith conversation between Manolo Gómez Bur and AJ Escribano on "the pork" really antológico. The performers are all great and some are shown here actually in a state of grace. Juanjo Menéndez by poor Modesto, or Manolo Gómez Bur the unluckiest of it in their role of veterinarian. Margot Cottens equally fantastic playing a widow launched. The same can be said of Florinda Chico, Rafaela Aparicio or Valeriano Andrés. But I would especially highlight the great Ana Maria Vidal, an extraordinary actress with extensive experience in theater and with an enviable track record. Formerly (60/70) was also very frequent on TV, but incredibly his presence in the films is reduced only to ... three movies !!! Does anyone understand ?. Here overboard the character of Rosita, a crazy and talkative girl who is one of the great strengths of the film. It may not be the best Spanish or the most original comedy, there may be people who prefer other types of humor, is also not a title as well known as those of Alfredo Landa, Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez, Paco Martinez Soria, Gracita Morales, Lina Morgan, etc. But if you like the style of humor said, the enjoy, because in terms of fun, laughter and enjoyment, few can compete with it.
