This begins promisingly, as a broad comedy about a taxi driver and his family stranded on a remote beach with an enigmatic, non-Spanish-speaking black man. The authority of Pajares' bullying yet ineffectual father is repeatedly undercut by his wife, Barranco's sly mockery, his fractious children's unruly behaviour, and the dignified stillness of Buale's iconic black man. However, with the subsequent arrival of three skinhead neo-Nazis, Basque director Uribe'sbroken-backed film suddenly becomes a facile social allegory about everyday racism.
