| Hollywood, try to learn!
And obviously try not to copy... What about this movie? I loved it! De La Iglesia hit perfectly the target using very well Spanish actors playing style. Spanish language, if well managed, allows movie to get a fast sequence of dialogs and scenes, that fits well black comedy style. I usually like all Spanish movies, that always bring all enthusiastic feelings of the recent country welfare. Spanish society deeply enjoy democratic and rich lifestyle, and Spanish movies communicate its happiness to the world. Raphael character reflects "Spanish dream", i.e. reaching success (such as "american dream") and also deeply enjoy life! Lourdes is a "clichè" of modern Spanish movies: the ugly, determined and sexual woman, who desires to be loved and struggle to obtain it. This movie is another strong lesson to the worldwide filmmakers: you don't need enormous budget to have a great movie: simply pick a good screenplay, good actors and manage all in the right way. Then you have to add some spices: foolish characters (Lourdes family) and grotesque elements (inspector squinting, the accident in Luna Park). Then put all together in the good environment (the shop: a little world that represent all characters life) and you have a magic movie!
