Barcelona set account of the Spanish financial crisis with unexpected musical interludes. The comparison with LALALAND doesn't get past a shared debt to the Jacques Demy Musicals.
Unemployment is wiping out Ivan Massagué, reduced to selling smoke alarms door to door from his van, after the cops break in and evict his family. The in law guarantors look like they will go too. The film even manages to spare a bit of sympathy for old friend banker Vila who foreclosed - though not much. His dad Homar goes into the office and slaps the guy when he finds out.
Strong performances, notably singer lead Sílvia Pérez Cruz and her mum Adrania Ozores. The disturbing account of the newly poor is backed with the films striking images - the van become a glittering love nest, the passengers synchronised diving in front of a metro train.
