NO MANCHES FRIDA
“No Manches Frida” is a re-make of the German smash hit, “Fack ju Gohte,” distributed by Constantin Films in 2013, that went on to become one of Germany’s top 10 films of all time. Slated for a Labor Day 2016 release, the Latino adaptation tells the story of Zequi (Omar Chaparro), a recently released bank robber who goes to recover stolen money buried by his ditzy accomplice before he was incarcerated, only to find that a school gymnasium has been built over the burial site.
To recover the money, he ends up taking a job as a substitute teacher and meets the sweet and earnest Lucy (Martha Higareda) as well as an unruly class of teenagers. Zequi finds that life on the inside may have been easier to deal with than a classroom of wild rebellious teens.
