This film is interesting to see , because of the bewildering as well as unfortunate situations that protagonists suffer are similarly happened to the new Spanish emigrants , as it is what we had to make thousands of Spaniards in order to earn the money out of the motherland . This is a bemusing film that contains hilarious sketches , tongue-in-check , grotesque incidents , but above all , it especially packs humor and irony ; concerning interesting issues as emigration and unemployment of a lost generation . Sitting in a strange middle ground and the stylishly enjoyable . What we want teaching is the status of some characters who share home in an apartment and working in Germany , and that they want everything to gain profits , it serves them in order to deliver their families . This ¨Perdiendo El Norte¨ also known as ¨Ab Nach Deutschland¨ bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Vente a Alemania Pepe¨ (1971) by Pedro Lazaga with Alfredo Landa ; in fact , it seems to be a remake adapted to contemporary times ; even the incombustible José Sacristán appears both films , here playing a retired old man with Alzheimer illness . It narrates the conflict between the traditional Spanish society and modernity that pushes each time with more force . Fun interpretations from Yon Gónzalez and Júlian López who attempt his luck traveling Berlin to find expectations and to bring to life the ¨German dream¨ . Support cast is frankly good , giving agreeable and catching acting as Malena Alterio , Úrsula Corberó , Miki Esparbé , Younes Bachir . And special mention for the always excellent : Javier Cámara , Carmen Machi and José Sacristán . Atmospheric musical score by Juanjo Javierre , including the classic song and film leitmotif : ¨Mi Querida España , Esta España Nuestra¨ by Cecilia . Colorful and evocative Cinematography by Isaac Vila .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Nacho G. Velilla who was born in Zaragoza, Aragón, where he often shoots his films . He is an expert on comedies and ¨Sitcom¨ , a notorious producer , director and writer , known for his TV series as ¨7 Vidas¨ (1999), ¨Aída¨ (2005) , ¨Gominólas¨, and some films as ¨Fuera De Carta¨ (2008) , ¨To Hell with the ugly¨ , ¨Villaviciosa De Al Lado¨ , ¨No Manches Frida¨, and this Box office successful ¨Perdiendo el Norte¨.
