Imitation is not enough.
21 January 2021 | by MiguelAReinaSee all my reviews

A choral comedy that somehow seeks influences in the cinema of Luis García Berlanga and Blake Edwards. The attempt is useless, because the script is poor in ideas and in character creation, and it stretches situations to try to find a humor that it does not find. The direction is also clumsy and without resources (almost all scenes with some internal action are resolved in a general, almost theatrical shot). Nor can the actors go beyond the creation of "masks" in bland and stereotyped characters.
