| Nice Spanish film with enjoyable performances by the main and secondary cast and well directed
When her grandmother (Lola Lemos) dies , a teenager (Amara Carmona) goes out to look for her mother . She is picked up by a truck man (Jorge Perugorria) who carries her the place where allegedly is the mother , but it results to be a road Puti-Club named Paradise . It is tyrannically ruled by a nasty pimp (Sancho Gracia) and a madame (Elvira Minguez).

From start to finish drama , action-packed , fast-paced , thrills , emotion and some humor is continuous . This is a thriller/comedy/drama that keeps you interested and expecting , including an agreeable love story . A naive Amara Carmona and an experienced Jorge Perroguria star in the sort of story we've seen sometime before , a young girl forced to serve at a brothel but one that is always fun when executed with style and Urbizu certainly seems to have that . Furthermore , a good support cast as Elvira Minguez , Pilar Bardem , Sara Mora , Aitor Mazo , Luis Cuenca , Pepo Oliva , Txema Blasco and , of course , Sancho Gracia , he is simply awesome and steals the show as a sardonic and humorous villain . And a brief intervention of Rodolfo Sancho , Sancho Gracia's son and today a notorious Spanish actor , playing a waiter . Colorful and glimmer cinematography by excellent cameraman Alfredo Mayo . Emotive as well as thrilling musical score by Bingen Mendizabal . The flick is based on a novel titled ¨Un Asunto De Honor¨ by Arturo Perez Reverte , a Spanish journalist and TV reporter, turned to writer and today the best-selling author in Spain and the best-selling Spanish author in the world . Famous author of "Alatriste" novels as he carried out quite a lot of the work of investigating historical documents relating to 17th Century Madrid. His novels have the common thread of being based on real historical times and that in each case a great deal of investigation goes into the making of his stories, as well as the fact that he has had to learn a great deal on topics ranging from chess-playing to historical first-editions from 16th Century Dutch masters to Informatics and even swordsmanship . His extraordinary imaginative abilities have been able to produce well-written adventure stories , being adapted for cinema the following novels : The Fencing Master , Territorio Comanche , The ninth gate , La Tabla De Flandes , Gitano and Carta Esferica .

The motion picture was professionally directed by Enrique Urbizu , one of the most gripping Spanish film noir and comedy directors . He is an expert on Thriller as proved in ¨Todo Por la Pasta¨, ¨Caja 507¨ that is one of the best heist films that have been realized in Spain and on comedy such as ¨Cuernos Mujer¨, ¨Como Ser Infeliz¨ and ¨Tu Novia esta Loca¨. His comeback of after some years absence was No Peace For The Wicked (No Habra Paz Para Los Malvados), an upcoming 'tough cop with big gun' movie and gained various winners for the 2012 Goya Awards , as the 26th Annual Goya Awards , presented by the Spanish Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences . ¨Cachito¨ rating : 6,5 . acceptable film and well worth watching . The motion picture will appeal to Spanish cinema buffs and Sancho Gracia fans .
