It's not a very good idea to go to the city of the Lion of St Mark, of the Doges, of Othello the Moor, of the Plague Doctor and Poe's The Cask of Amontillado madly shouting, "We're going to take Venice!". Because we know that what we all know (except the protagonists) will happen. Especially if it's directed by Álex de la Iglesia and the screenplay involves Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Especially if you arrive just when the locals are sick to the back teeth of tourists. Especially if you don't know the Venetian fable of Corto Maltese. Especially if you don't take the carnival and its masquerade seriously. And it makes not a jot of a difference if you're the self-same Ingrid García-Jonsson. Think that the cinematographer is the guy from "30 Coins" (2021), Pablo Rosso. And that one of the producers is Carolina Bang.
