Reminiscent of the outrageous early films of Almodóvar, this ebullient farce is a smorgasbord of hot men and raucous comedy- with a sassy Spanish flavor! Sinfully handsome Victor is a real estate agent in Madrid's expanding, candy-colored "gaybourhood." But Victor hides a wicked little secret - he murders old ladies then flips their flats to gorgeous upwardly-mobile men. When bearish couple, Rey and Leo, inherit the latest victim's abode, they move Rey's saucy-mouthed mother in. But the aging diva doesn't fit Victor's vision of the ultimate gay paradise and now it's up to an eccentric detective and her sexually confused son to uncover the scheme.

The basic plot is that a corrupt estate agent is bumping off old ladies in Madrid's gay neighbourhood in order to but the property cheep and make big bucks out of the pink pound. The story revolves around two cuddly bears, one with an over bearing mother in law and one who develops a crush on the estate agent.
There are some lovely comedy pieces and some great direction from Juan Flahn. There is a stressed police chief who is trying to track down the murderer and her side kick son is just excellent as he slowly creeps out of the closet.
The title sequence is lavish by comparison to some productions and I think this signals that this was not a low budget effort and a lot of attention to detail has gone in, which really pays off. This is in Spanish with very good English sub titles, and even with a run time of 94 minutes it just flew past.
This is said to have been influenced by Almodovar and yes you can see it, but this is a great film in its own right and signs of an ever emerging Spanish film scene that needs supporting and applauding. If you like this then check out `Chefs Special', another little gem of a film.
Unlike many gay films it was made on a decent budget and features some familiar faces. Lots of eye candy too, a great popcorn movie!
A must for any gay latin lover ;)
And that's it. The murders are a mixed bag, rather as if Jack Lemmon was back again from How to Murder Your Wife, except he failed each time whereas our killer here gets it almost right. Eventually he's caught (that's no spoiler as it is totally predictable). The jokes come along the way, often drawing on steretypes, and the Almodovar analogy is rightly made - loud women, grumpy mothers, camp gays. If I only show limited enthusiasm it is because I watched it late at night and had to re-view sections as I nodded off; but it is good fun.
Laughter is mixed with tears, happiness with sadness, comedy with thriller plus a bit of absurd.
There are not paper characters in this film. From "straight-from-hell" mother-in-law to hypohondric detective and her "still-in-the-closet" son. From evil estate agent to cute chubby driving instructor.
Very good and very advised to watch.
If you like this sort of storyline you would be better off with `9 Dead Gay Guys' - which is a real black comedy - or for a Spanish flavour `Chef's Special'. They have a solid plot and are quite funny. This film is fine if you're not too pushed about having a laugh.
