Original title

Amanece, que no es poco




Jaime Borrell, Antonio Oliver, Fernando Valverde

A clear expression of Spanish surrealism in film. Satirical, every scene is filled with jokes and comic situations.

Teodoro, a young Spanish engineer who works as a teacher at the University of Oklahoma, returns to his village with his family, only to discover when he arrives that his father has killed his mother. His father, to compensate the loss, buys him a motorbike with a sidecar.
They start out on a journey together and end up in a mountain village. Here, little by little, they discover the peculiarities of the village and its very odd inhabitants.
