A raucous, edgy, and surprisingly human romantic comedy that focuses on men and their vulnerabilities. When handsome, 20-something Diego gets dumped by his fiancée a few days before his wedding, his immature best friends, playboy Julian and henpecked José Miguel, step in to cheer him up. They take him on a road trip to a seaside town to reconnect with Martina, his first love. But Martina is now a single mom, and the three friends suddenly have to deal with grown-up situations, often with hilarious results. As José Miguel develops a sweet, paternal bond with the little boy, Diego tries to come to grips with strong but conflicted feelings for Martina. Daniel Sánchez Arevalo is one of Spain’s most popular and respected directors. He scored a flood of Goya awards for his 2006 film, Dark Blue Almost Black. In this thoroughly modern comedy of bad manners he reunites with the stars of that hit, Quim Gutiérrez and Antonio de la Torre, to deliver his trademark brand of raunchy, perfectly-timed comedy rooted in rich and fully developed characters and storylines.
Director Daniel Sánchez Arévalo and Actor Quim Gutiérrez are expected to attend both screenings.
