| Sympathetic and attractive documentary portraying the male situation throughout the old times
This is the following to ¨Con la Pata Quebrada¨ also directed by Diego Galan and presented by Carlos Hipolito , this one described unequal status of women from Republic to democracy , heir to a long tradition of marginalization, subjugation, exploitation and lack of rights , including the marginalized spinsters . This ¨Manda Huevos¨results to be an interesting documentary about the status of the Spanish man since Francoist time to democracy .Documentary movie dealing with a portrait of the Spanish man through a lot of films , taking 180 fragments from the 4os until the 8os . At the same time the picture details a sour description upon social classes , catholicism , the holy marriage , military service , emigrants and many other things , these issues are well shown in a lot of pictures . It details the usual male wishes during Franco epoch : to be priest , or soldier or bullfighter . And male hobbies as Tebeos or comic books reading : Capitan Trueno , Roberto Alcazar y Pedrin , Inspector Dan , Hazañas Belicas ...

This is a typical documentary film voiced by prestigious actress Carmen Machi , describing Spanish male evolution , social critique , including mockery or wholesale review upon religion , subversive behavior and Franco regime . Concerning the tourist outbreak and with Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez and Alfredo Landa creator of a sub-genre : ¨Landismo¨ , chasing foreign women .

And other engaging pictures with enjoyable images dealing with military service or ¨Mili¨ such as : 15 bajo la lona , Quinta del porro , Soldadito Español , Boton de ancla , Con el culo al aire , La Becerrada , El puente , Cronicas del Bromuro .

The motion picture was well produced by Enrique Cerezo and Agustin Almodovar , Pedro's brother , that's why in the documentary we see numerous Almodovar's fragments from ¨Todo Sobre Mi Madre¨ ,¨Talk to her¨ , ¨Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown¨ , among others . The motion picture picture was well directed by Diego Galan though with no originality .
