Alan Masferrer presents a heavy-smoking playboy and his delightfully energetic friend in this kooky and very charming two-hander for LA's electro-disco duo Oliver.

With plenty of appropriately 80s signifiers – the lips on the TV screens, the gold lamé swimwear, and a hero with a touch of the Dudley Moores about him - Masferrer toys with numerous influences (including perhaps, the love-hate relationship between Clouseau and Kato in the Pink Panther films). But there is nothing predictable about it - oer a recognisably linear narrative.

But who cares, with a song this good, and a couple (Spanish actors Sheila Jordà and Xavier Pàmies) this loveable...?

From the director

ALAN MASFERRER:

"Creatively the main challenge was to deal with some amazing but also too overexploted references from the Eighties. The design of the set was one of my main obsessions but I didn't realize how difficult it was to work on until it was too late to change. It was much smaller and limiting than I had imagined.

"I have to give massive thanks to Grayskull and to all my crew, they made a huge effort to get everything I asked and to finish my demanding shooting plan in only one day, even suffering some inopportune power outages! Caroline Clayton, my lovely rep in the US, was also amazing getting this job for me and making everything as easy as possible."
