In Heaven they speak French, in Hell, English.,
This review is from: Don't Tempt Me (DVD)
There are problems in the afterlife. Heaven is on the verge of bankruptcy, while Hell is suffering from overcrowding and its CEO (Hell is run like a business) is about to be overthrown. The only thing that can stop either of these events is the acquisition of a certain soul, that of a Spanish boxer. Enter Penelope Cruz and Victoria Abril. Abril plays the agent of Heaven, who must pose as the boxer's estranged wife, while Cruz plays the agent of Hell, who is posing as the boxer's long-lost cousin and who isn't quite what she appears.
This film is very good fun. It's fun to see the writer and director's vision of the afterlife (Heaven is Paris and Hell is a prison), and the ending had me giggling for the next two days. It is also fun to see Gael Garcia Bernal as Jack Davenport, the charismatic CEO of Hell (who happens to hold a Swiss passport while on Earth). It's not a perfect film, but you're also not going to waste your money if you buy it.
