28 January 1999 | Cos-5
One of the best Spanish comedies
It's simply hilarious! On the opening night, the actors, writer and producers of an "opereta" are arrested on the most far-fetched acussations. The story unfolds as the several characters make their affidavits: the impoverished actress engaged to the producer's wife's son (who is a Mama's boy and an homosexual); the monk forced by his superior to join the cast as the "Chaste Joseph" because the production is for charity purposes, the rich, bourgeoise producer and his diva of a wife, who appear to be conservative, religious and supporters of Franco's regime, when in fact they are immoral and anarchists. The most funny parts are Ana Belén's naïve attempts to seduce the "Chaste Joseph" (Banderas) and get him to marry her, instead of her foolish boyfriend, and her mother's fear that she will stay single for life, as she has already survived three boyfriends.
