"Gente Pez"

Gente Pez (2001), or Fishy People, is a Spanish youth oriented adult only comedy that centers around two friends who move into an apartment owned by one of their aunts without her knowledge, then rent several extra rooms to an odd assortment of people, including a nerd that they suspect is a terrorist, a guitarist who lives to stay stoned or drunk, and supports himself giving music lessons, and an attractive female art student whose professor/lover has a studio upstairs. This is the apartment from hell, and there isn't a single character I could relate to in the film. Examples of the side splitting humor include someone popping a really juicy zit in a close up, and a toilette that is never cleaned, and gets so bad that everyone uses a restaurant bathroom next door.

There is only brief breast exposure from Laura Domínguez, having sex with her boyfriend. IMDB readers have this at 4.9 of 10, which is about how I felt about it. I can't imagine that this would appeal to anyone old enough to be admitted to the theater. No danger of that in the US, as this hasn't made its way here, and is only available on a Spanish Region 2 PAL. The film is technically adequate, but, at least for me, didn't have even one laugh, and is therefor an E.

    "La lengua de las mariposas"

    La lengua de las mariposas (1999), or The Tongue of the Butterfly, is one of the best films I have seen this year, and it is available in the US under the title Butterfly. It is the story of Monsho, a 7 year old son of a tailor living in Galicia, who is preparing for his first day of school. He has been kept out before this due to problems with asthma, and really doesn't want to go to school, as he already reads, and has heard from his brother that teachers hit kids. On the first day, the teacher calls him to the front of the room. He is so frightened that he wets himself, and runs from the school. He is gone all night, and a search party finally finds him. He was trying to catch a boat to America, like his uncle did to avoid the draft. This is the first hint that there is more to the story than just coming of age.

    The professor comes to his house, assures him that he never hits anyone, especially children, takes him back to school, and takes him under his wing. The two become close. Moncho is bright and eager to learn, and the professor is the most interesting and kind person Moncho has known. Moncho has a girl friend, and makes several school acquaintances. This all is occurring during that brief moment of freedom before the Fascist takeover in the Spanish Civil War. People were feeling free enough to admit that they were not loyal Catholics, and felt they could speak their minds about the government.

    The exposure comes from Elena Fernández. Monsho and his friend follow her boyfriend to her house to "watch him hump her." She only enjoys sex when her dog is near, and barking at the boyfriend's testicles. One of the lessons from the teacher, Don Gregorio (Fernando Fernán Gómez) was about a bird that picks an orchid and gives it to his love. Late in the film, after the teacher is retired, but continues to take Moncho on nature walks, they catch a butterfly, and are about to finally see the tongue through a new microscope, when Moncho hears young girls splashing in a nearby lake. Sure enough, his girlfriend is among them. The professor hands him a daisy, and reminds him of the bird, and he wades into the water to give it to her. The other girls, holding their arms over where their breasts will someday be, move out into the lake. His girlfriend takes the flower, and then kisses him.

    The film was full of such beautiful moments, and then ends with a heavy dose of reality that will leave you staring at the screen for a long while. IMDB readers say 7.4 of 10. Critics were enthusiastic at around 3 stars. The film won a Goya for best actor, and was nominated for 12 more. Alejandro Amenábar, who owed a debt of gratitude to Producer/director José Luis Cuerda for supporting his career, wrote the musical score for him. This film is a B, and might be higher except for subtitles.

    Other crap:


    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.
