When the plan goes awry, José, along with his half-wit sidekick Tony, hijacks a taxi driver. A violent and frenetic car chase ensues into the depths of witch territory and things take a sharp turn towards the macabre.
In this reckless battle of the sexes, director Álex de la Iglesia enhances his vision with top-shelf production, resulting in a fast-paced, zany spectacle of a film that will shock audiences into laughter and leave them breathless.
Winner of eight Goya Awards, including Best Supporting Actress (Terele Pávez), Best Art Direction and Best Special Effects.

Witching and Bitching (Las brujas de Zugarramurdi)
Wildly fleeing toward France through the impenetrable Basque forest after a jewel heist, a hapless band of robbers runs afoul of an evil coven of witches led by Marichu, her daughter Graciana and granddaughter Eva. The robbery is masterminded by José, a down-on-his-luck divorced dad who, due to his custody schedule, is forced to bring his eight-year-old son to the robbery.
