    My fav Spanish movie of all time and also one of the darkest comedies ever. I don’t know how Berlanga pulled the thing out in 1964, amidst the Spanish dictatorship (which would go on for another decade). As you’ve said in the “Movie Journal”, the lightness of the tone is deliberate, an artistic choice that might also had helped avoid censorship.

    Good on Criterion for the release and on BP for covering it!
