Pajares & Esteso

When Spain finally exited the civil war it started a period of poorness and hazards for most of the Spaniards. There were exceptions, of course, but most people had rationed food for a long time, almost till the mid-50s.

スペインの国内戦争の後で、スペイン人の人間すごい困りました。五十年代まで、買い物使用の法律がありました。

When in the beginning of the 60s, the regime opened the country to the foreign currencies and tourists, the economy started to grow steadily till the mid 70s, when due to the oil crisis the country faced again bad times.

六十年代、国の支配がちょっとう変わりました、七重年代まで経済良くなった。その時から、経済の危機も一回に帰りました。

Franco was dying, the economy going to the shityard and everybody was dying for a couple of tits on-screen. In this peculiar ecosystem, a phenomenon known by the name of “El Destape”  (lit. “the uncover”) was born. Cheap and stupid comedies where any excuse is good to show some fresh meat.

フランコは死んでたながら、経済は地獄まで行って、スペイン社会中ですごいやらしの気持ちがありました。その時、エル・デスターペ時代が生まれた。その時代って、めっちゃダサイ映画出ったけど。

The pinnacle of that kind of movies comes in the form of two comics, by the name of Fernando Esteso and Andrés Pajares. They are the stereotype of the losers that always try to get rich yet repeatedly fail to achieve any of their dreams.

この映画ぽい中で、フェルナンド・エステソとかアンドレス・パジャレスはジェンルの王様ですよ。

That kind of character totally fits in the Spain of the 70s/80s so the movies were a huge success.

七十年代で、スペイン社会はそのカモのキャラクターとかやらしい場合要りました。
