"Holiday Comedy Club" is practically unimaginable without one of the most popular European comedies of all time - the tape of the Italian director Paolo Genoveses "Perfect Liars".

The aim of the intriguing game is to prove that no one has anything to hide. The comedy, characterized by a simple but extremely well-solved plot, human characters and subtle humor, so impressed viewers and creators all over the world that the film received the Guinness World Records for the largest number of film remakes. 

"Triangle of Sadness" consider "The Good Boss" - these are the comedies that won the hearts of viewers and critics this year. "Triangle of Sorrow" won Swedish director Ruben Östlund's second Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was chosen as the best European film of 2022. The satirical comedy aptly comments on the vanity of today's elite and class differences, turning what Instagrammable, to the infernal. Directed by Fernando León de Aranoa, The Good Boss, starring the devilishly charming actor Javier Bardem, delves into the vicissitudes of the capitalist world, grand ambitions, and the lack of morality and empathy to achieve one's goals. The clever comedy won 6 Spanish Goya awards and the title of this year's best European comedy.

Those looking for romance will be delighted by the tapes "Figaro in Love" consider "The love affairs".
