Don't Tempt Me ★★

Agents from both heaven (Victoria Abril) and hell (Penelope Cruz) are trying to win over the soul of a boxer named Manny in this weird multilingual film from 2001.

The whole story is quite surreal but the decor and the execution remain unimaginative and the story proceeds erratically. I think this counts above all as a comedy, but not many sequences are that funny. Abril and Cruz are great, and it's funny to also see other famous actors like Gael García Bernal, Fanny Ardant and Gemma Jones in eccentric side roles.

In a nutshell, I would classify the film as a forgettable curiosity with no special meaning or message.
