An Almost Perfect World
Un mundo casi perfecto | Esteban Ibarretxe, José Miguel Ibarretxe, 2011
Spain | 97 minutes

Things haven’t been going so well for Ismael. A failed screenwriter, he’s put on weight, been abandoned by his girlfriend, and is down to his last Euros. What’s more, he’s the only witness to a crime, and the police want to put him in protective custody—that is, if Willy, the perp the police are trying to lock up, doesn’t get to him first. A fast and furious comedy with some delightfully unexpected twists and turns, as Ismael discovers how exciting life can be on the wrong side of the tracks.
