Queens is a comedy from Spain that traces the complicated intertwining of the lives of 3 gay couples and five of the young men's mothers, fathers, mother's lovers, father's lovers, and dog. It's funny and fun and a tad bit sappy. It's a mixture of the comedy found in "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" with that found in "Radio Days". The boys provide lots of eye candy, and actors playing the mom's represent some of the best the modern Spanish cinema has to offer.
In the accompanying featurette of the making of the movie, you hear the cast declare how much fun they had making the movie, and that's also part of it's charm. Thumbs up for Queens.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
