A very fine movie that sticks with you after it is over. It combines biting satire of the media and today's money centered society with a moving human drama. This is a hard trick to pull off, but director Alex de la Iglesia does it. Spanish comic Jose Mota is excellent in a three-dimensional role, and Salma Hayek gives the best performance I have seen her give. In her English language movies she is usually stiff and seems out of place, but here she is vibrant, touching and commanding. The movie has a similar impact to Billy Wilder's Ace In the Hole but with more of an emotional impact--and that's saying a lot.
