Run Time: 85 minutes
Spanish cinema gave the world "Cr?a," a 1975 Carlos Saura movie which the late, great Charles Schulz himself hailed as one of the best features to ever portray the psychology of a child. Now comes a logical successor, and (good grief!) it even happens to draw its inspiration from a popular comic strip. Manolito, your narrator, is a plucky, pudgy, rather disaster-prone boy from a noisy, proletarian family in Madrid. For the first time ever he gets a vacation away from home, mom, little brother ("the imbecile"), and school when he's taken on a trip to the seacoast, accompanied by his trucker-father eager to make up for work-related parental absences. Still, Manolito can't keep out of trouble in a very funny comedy-of-errors. MANOLITO FOUR-EYES is a grown?up look at the way a child's-eye-view (through the spectacles that give the hero his nickname) analyzes, dissects, misinterprets, and monkey-wrenches the odd ways of adults. (In Spanish with English subtitles.)
