Synopsis by Mark Deming
Love, larceny, and misunderstanding make for comedy in this humorous crime thriller from Spain. Jon (Joseba Apaolaza) is a bank teller engaged to his boss's daughter. But a chance meeting with his former girlfriend Carmen (Marta Belaustegui) gives Jon second thoughts, and he skips out of the wedding at the last minute, with the bride waiting at the altar. To the surprise of no one, Jon is fired; a few days later, his friend Javier (Isidoro Fernandez) knocks over the bank where Jon used to work, with the help of his girlfriend Candela (Cayetana Guillen Cuervo). Jon, strapped for cash, calls Javier and asks for some money; Javier, however, is convinced that Jon knows he committed the robbery and wants blackmail money, not just a loan. Supporting actress Cayetana Guillen Cuervo is best-known to American audiences for her role in The Grandfather, which earned an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film.
