Jessica Kiang The Playlist It all makes for a bumpy ride, though one not without its charms, particularly in yet another superb performance from great French-Moroccan actor Roschdy Zem Rated: B- Apr 14, 2016 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) A film so brave, dignifying and honorable that's almost impossible to say anything bad about it. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2.5/5 May 31, 2016 Full Review Luis Martínez El Mundo (Spain) The director limits himself, maybe innocently, to reconstruct the misadventure of a couple of losers and their way of seeing the world: innocent, warm, and dignified. [Full review in Spanish] May 31, 2016 Full Review Ernesto Diezmartinez Cine Vértigo A barely amusing comedy. [Full review in Spanish] May 30, 2016 Full Review Edgardo Reséndiz Reforma A great comedy about a fun (and dark) subject that works perfectly, with endearing characters and a great homage to Chaplin. [Full review in Spanish] May 30, 2016 Full Review Eduardo Molina Reforma A fascinating film inspired by true events with an interesting proposal by the director and actors to portray the different personalities of Chaplin.

Serge L Crime born of desperation is always a bit understandable. In this case, no one was in danger except a body, albeit very rich. Amusing and touching and grandly small. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/14/21 Full Review Read all reviews
