Recently seperated from his wife and drowning in debt, Jose is struggling to survive. With his ex-wife fighting for sole custody of their son, Jose becomes desperate, deciding to rob a Cash-for-Gold store in a last ditch effort. Along with a few equally desperate buddies, the robbery is a success, as they get away with thousands of gold wedding rings. Fleeing from the scene, they enter Basque County, an area that is the legendary home of ancient covens and witchcraft. Alex de la Iglesia's Witching & Bitching is exactly what you'd come to expect from the filmmaker, another highly entertaining, subversive horror comedy that excels due its one-of-a-kind, absurd storytelling. his is a welcome return for Alex de la Iglesia, as I felt his last few films were a little reserved for the filmmaker. Luckily, Witching & Bitching is as bonkers as one has come to expect, using a farce witch-based storyline to poke fun at both the male and female gender. Witching & Bitching is pure mayhem, being a "Battle of the Sexes" film in a way that only Alex de la Iglesia could provide. Nearly every male character in this film is controlled by his sexual desires, while every female is over sensitive and emotional, and Alex de la Iglesia never holds back in deconstrucing the larger stereotypes of both sexes. Grotesque, outlandish, and full of energy, Witching & Bitching is an incredibly fun film that grows more and more absurd by the minute.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
