Storyline

César, vigorous in his 60s, runs a vineyard near Barcelona. The week he learns his vines have worms, a former associate calls: César is a retired hit man and the call blackmails into one final murder - of an accountant exposing political corruption. César tells his daughter, who's about to marry, that he'll be back soon - and goes to the flat in the city set up for him across the street from the accountant. There are complications: he becomes a favorite of women in the building, the accountant befriends him at a market, and he sees his son-in-law entering a house of ill repute on the street. There's also a female cop dropping by. Can César navigate his dilemmas? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Silly but enjoyable black comedy
22 July 2012 | by MidwestGeekSee all my reviews

My wife & I enjoyed this comedy, even though the characters were outlandish caricatures, the story was preposterous, and the ending was absurd. It is generally hard to sustain comedy, which is why so few good ones are made, but this movie kept our interest. Even though the theme is dark, it reminded me of slapstick--it's funny even though you sort of know what to expect. There probably wasn't enough material for 94 minutes, but there was enough to keep us laughing. The lead was played by the venerable actor, Sancho Gracia, now 75 years old, who was also one of the writers, apparently his only noteworthy effort in this direction. The supporting actors were also quite good, especially Ágata Lys as the police detective.
