The Little Switzerland

Director: Kepa Sojo
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 1.0

After a small town in northern Spain gets rejected from being accepted as part of the Basque Country, two researchers (Jon Plazaola and Maggie Civantos) accidentally discover, beneath one of the churches, the tomb of Swiss legend William Tell's son, so the villagers do an about face and claim to be the 27th canton of Switzerland.  It's always nice to be reminded that the Estados Unidos doesn't have a monopoly on unfunny comedies with lame storylines and jokes that thud (except for the actual bomb, because we all know about those pesky separatists...).  There are some romantic subplots in it but they're hardly integral to the story (and some brief last-minute nudity): it all just breezes on by.
