Disculpin les molèsties

Director Nando Caballero
Spain / 88 min. / 2018 / Catalan and Spanish


Under the slogan "Rock and Anarchy", this is a profile of the tireless singer-songwriter from Barcelona with an internal funny bone, El Sobrino del Diablo, who has spent almost two decades trekking his irreverent songs through squares and taverns.


Juan Gómez González, better known by his artistic name El Sobrino del Diablo, is surely one of the most foul-mouthed hardworking musicians on the Catalan scene. A minstrel, between blues and urban folk-rock, who resigned his position as a high school language and literature teacher to devote himself body and soul to his musical career. Since 1999, he has had an average of two or three concerts a week and he hasn’t stopped for breath, not even the day after becoming a father. This documentary brings us closer to his world through his songs and monologues performed in the privacy of a tavern, and also the testimony of folks like Andreu Buenafuente, the cartoonist Carlos Azagra, the writer Carlos Zanón, the writer and composer Sabino Méndez, the singer Juanito Piquete or an old friend like Dani Rodríguez (Mr. Rodríguez), with whom he started playing at L'Astrolabi in the Gracia neighbourhood. And, among many other things, ruminations on rock, anarchy, cycling, basketball, Frank Zappa, Thin Lizzy ... and a sense of humor as "the vaseline necessary to endure everything that surrounds us and drowns us".
