Well constructed, Well played, Poignant, Funny, Clever

See it if you’d like to see a sympathetic but stinging comedy that exposes the insecurities of the contemporary middle-aged man.

Don't see it if you’re a man who can’t bear to watch as men’s great frailties are exposed (& skewered), or don’t speak Spanish & hate dealing with subtitles Read more

Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Delightful, Clever

See it if you want to laugh at a simple situation taken to the extreme by two talented actors who give a wonderful, engaging performance.

Don't see it if if you do not know Spanish or do not want to read subtitles in English, otherwise don't miss it if you like comedy.

“We are thoroughly entertained by the twists and turns of loan negotiation...We engage in the proceedings as though we are seated in a third chair at the table...De Lombana has us laughing all the way...During the evening we get funny lessons in negotiating, lovemaking, and the use of the eyes and hands to express ineffable emotions...A duet and a pas de deux. Go see it to appreciate its enchanting humor.”
