Penelope Cruz and Victoria Abril (Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down) both play angels in this 2001 satirical fantasy from Spain, but Cruz is of the fallen variety. The two are sent to earth by their respective employers to battle over the soul of a boxer (Demian Bechir). Writer-director Agustin Diaz Yanes envisions heaven as a Parisian nightclub shot in black and white and hell as a multinational corporation run by Brits, and thickens his batter with lots of cinematic quotes and references to film noir, John Woo, and Martin Scorsese. The color-coded cinematography is nice but the jokes are obvious and the dialogue drags whenever metaphysics gets brought up. In Spanish, French, and Latin with subtitles. 113 min.
