Critic Reviews for The Perfect Crime (El Crimen Perfecto)(Crimen ferpecto)
A story that begins as farce but that evolves into something approaching satirical profundity.
This Spanish-language romp is a delightful send-up of retail culture, movie thrillers and the eternal 'ladies' man' facing his just deserts.
My advice is to choose the first half, where things are really funny until they aren't.
An outrageous comedy of errors set at a Madrid department store.
An astute satire on the boundlessness of unchecked sexual fetishism and power.
Audience Reviews for The Perfect Crime (El Crimen Perfecto)(Crimen ferpecto)
Alex De la Iglesia is an expert connoisseur of the bizarrerie he likes to have in his films, and here it works perfectly. the ludicrous ending is the only big problem of this ultra hilarious noir comedy.
[font=Century Gothic]"The Perfect Crime" starts with Rafael(Guillermo Toledo) living his ideal life as the head of the ladies wear department, having nightly affairs with members of his nubile staff. He is in a competition with Antonio(Luis Varela), of mens wear, to be the new floor manager but loses out on the final day. Not only that, but Antonio intends to fire his rival for openly berating a customer. But before that can happen, Rafael and Antonio scuffle and Rafael accidentally kills Antonio. Now, Rafael has two new problems: a possible eyewitness and what to do with the body?[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"The Perfect Crime" is a very entertaining black satire that wittily comments on the materialistic, shallow culture that we live in without turning into a lecture. The events are seen through Rafael's eyes and narration.(The movie getting more surreal as it goes along might be a sign of Rafael starting to lose his mind.) He does not see much in Lourdes(Monica Cervera), but only because she is plain looking, unlike most of the women who work for him. However, she does have a few surprises in store... [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]And please tell me that is not an actual reality show...[/font]
Hilariously wacky black comedy about a department store salesman whose comfortable life is turned upside down after he is passed over for a promotion. A modern, hip sensibility is beautifully integrated with deeply serious events, in this thoroughly winning Spanish farce. Indeed his life spins so wildly out of control, the results are delightfully ridiculous. Actress Mónica Cervera is particularly effective as Lourdes, a co-worker he would rather have nothing to do with.
