In this unsparing satire on gender relations and small-town realpolitik, Mayor Patrizio Etxebeste (Ramon Agirre), learning that embezzlement scandals are bringing down his counterparts in nearby towns, has every reason to believe that his head is next. His search for a stand-in takes him no further than the woman on the next pillow, his wife Maria Luisa (Elena Irureta), who won’t take no for an answer. With the marvelous ML in charge, things in this moribund town start to change—but even a clean sweep kicks up dust. While offering the rare pleasure of hearing the Basque language spoken, the film, shot in Bergara, is in the tradition of classic Czech and Italian comedies in showing how humorous everyday corruption can be.—Judy Bloch
