Only for Spaniards...
27 April 2006 | by rainking_esSee all my reviews

WARNING: If you're not Spanish or you haven't lived in Spain for a long time you'll probably won't understand anything of what's going on, also you won't catch on neither with the slang nor with the funny accent of the characters.

Now, "Makinavaja" was the most popular character of the cartoonist Ivá, Makinavaja was a old school crook that tries to survive the best he can along with his friends, Popeye, and the "moromierda"... It's pretty hard to adapt a character like this one to cinema, although Andr{es Pajares gave of his best. The movie is rather a combination of sketches adapted from Ivá's strip cartoons and some of them are real funny, but the movie doesn't even get close to the quality and the genius of the Catalan artist (his anti-system philosophy, his irreverence..).

*My rate: 4/10
