Nutty and nice comedy starred by Dani Rovira , a new Alfredo Landa in the Spanish cinema
Fun and uplifting Spanish romantic comedy with crazy events , amusement and absurd situations . The picture is well starred by Dani Rovira , new king of Spanish comedy . This entertaining film packs amusement , slapstick , comical situations , tongue-in-cheek , surrealist comedy including conventional pitfalls and many other things . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly cool . This is a fast crazy movie with lot of fun situations , grotesque incidents , bemusement and with a bunch of very hilarious roles . This is another Spanish comedy romp , it is a bemusing story that displays lots of humor , entertainment , embarrassing situations and involving a young suitor , his bride , relatives and friends . It deals with a likable Spanish couple Álex (Dani Rovira) and Eva (María Valverde) about get married and the subsequent preparation for a wedding o in which everything goes wrong . Although he believes that's not a good idea the wedding to be celebrated in Castle Comble , England , a peculiar location in bucolic outdoors and then problems crop out . As when they go aboard the England flight , it is spontaneously suspended by a strike carried out by flight operators . Everything that you can imagine is far from the stupid things that may happen her , as it results in the wedding celebrations turned upside down .
This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion , craziness , binge , twists and an intimate love story . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind , and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing . Close comedy concerning about friendship , mayhem , antics , frolics , and a moving romance ; including enjoyable interpretations with outcast roles were pretty well developed . As their touching love story and , subsequently , a possible wedding suspension that becomes extremely affecting , partly because it's so innocent and partly because it's under threat of being ripped apart by an error . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with some naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , bad taste and spicy scenes . This is a special Spanish comedy from the 2015s with the usual ingredients such as wild humor topped with a little bit of original touches here and there and the tone of the film is light-hearted . It's an agreeable , moving film , perfectly acted and concerning the narration about the relationship among bride , guests , fiancée , fiancés , best man , relatives and friends . This is a typical Spanish comedy from the recent century , similarly to ¨La Gran Familia Española¨ by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo , ¨Quién mató a Bambi?¨ (2013) by Santi Amodeo or ¨Tres Bodas De Más¨ with Imma Cuesta with the usual ingredients such as silly humor , absurd events and close relationships among people . It turns out to be pleasantly fun that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever ; an exercise in pure amusement in which entertainment and fun are guaranteed . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and weird and the film races on at incredible speed . Higlights of this film include a peculiar bet between Dani Rovira and two Dutchmen , an amusing race for a rolling cheese , an impressive irruption in helicopter and spectacular as well as puzzling ending celebration . On the surface, ¨Ahora o Nunca¨ doesn't get much wrong , it looks okay , the comedy misunderstandings pile up in a reasonably amusing fashion and the performance is acceptable . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are things I haven't been able to stop laughing about ; however , it also contains ridiculous happenings and some grossed issues . Great acting by Dani Rovira , he truly steals the show . Dani is the recent king of Spanish romantic comedy with successes as ¨8 Apellidos Vascos¨ and ¨8 Apellidos Catalanes¨ . In fact , the film is a Dani Rovira recital , as he stooges , jokes , makes acrobatics , and puts faces and grimaces . It's a pretty amusing farce with this master actor , ordinary in ¨Stand-up comedy¨ shows . Sympathetic acting by Maria Valverde as lovely young who wishes really to marry but things get awry . And enjoyable performance from Clara Lago as beloved friend . In reality Clara Lago and Dani Rovira are a couple and this film marks the second time they have worked together . Fine support cast such as Alicia Rubio , Gracia Olayo , Jordi Sánchez , Joaquín Núñez and Melody's film debut.
Colorful cinematography by Pau Esteve who has photographed successes as ¨Hermosa Juventud¨ , ¨Tú Y yo¨ , ¨Alpha¨ , ¨Buried¨ and ¨Caníbal¨ . Atmospheric and catching musical score by Simon Smith , including attractive songs . The motion picture was professionally directed by Maria Ripoll . Maria Ripoll was born in 1964 in Barcelona, Catalonia , Spain and considered to be one of the best Spanish female filmmakers that has won several prizes and nominations . She is a good director and assistant director , being especially known for the successful ¨Tortilla Soup¨ (2001) , ¨Lluvia En Zapatos¨ or ¨The Man with Rain in His Shoes¨ (1998) , "Your Life in 65" (2006) with Javier Pereira , Oriol Vila , Tamara Arias and ¨Rastres de Sàndal¨ (2014) . Maria has directed known international stars such as Penélope Cruz , Lena Headey , Héctor Helizondo , Leonardo Sbaraglia , Tchéky Karyo , Jacqueline Obradors , Elizabeth Peña , Douglas Henshall , Mark Strong , among others . She also made a thriller that failed at box office titled ¨Utopia¨ with Najwa Nimri , José Garcia , Emma Vilarasau and Fele Martínez .
