Correct remake of Life on Mars
27 April 2009 | by osanjoseSee all my reviews

Spanish premiere of the local version of Life on Mars was yesterday on TV. Cinematography and art direction are good, not in 16:9 format yet, but not cheesy. It looks like it has had some supervision from the original producers of the British version.

Some unbelievable things like a Policeman could have as official car an Alfa Romeo Giulia. In 1977 imported cars were extremely expensive, even a non-expensive, in the rest of Europe, car as the Giulia, was very expensive in Spain due to taxes on imported cars. It would have been more believable for 1977 a Seat 128, a Seat Sport 1430. If the condition was a 4 door sedan a Chrysler 150, or a Chrysler 180 even though it was a high class car.

Terrace houses were very uncommon in 1977 in Spain , so the initial shots in such houses when police is going to arrest the criminal, looks like Spanish production has imitated British one without having in mind working class used to live in flats.

Besides this acting is very bad, even for great actors as Ernesto Alterio. They don't believe a word of their roles. Antonio Garrido looks younger than Ernesto Alterio. The script is the same one than UK premiere slightly adapted to Spain, but slow and boring.
