| An edearing (football) comedy
At seventy the indefatigable Fernando Fernan Gomez directed himself as Don Anibal and five veteran stars of Spanish comedy as proud and frustrated pensioners in a care home run by the strict Sor María, known by her residents as la bruja/the witch (María Asquerino). Outvoted when they want to watch the football on the common room television, they take an interest in the football the orphans play in the yard of the neighbouring institution. Inept, they want to help them and give them a sense of purpose for a victory in the local youth football league. Will the dream be realised when Don Anselmo (Jose Luis Vazquez) joins them and organises a most audacious bank heist to raise money to get the boys proper boots and football strip? An endearing comedy with a script full of quips reflecting on the Franco years and the new Democracy.
