Young people in Madrid in the 1950
10 April 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Madrid is in the years 50, and four young people are gathered in a kiosk routinely to make their plans. They are Andres, who works as buttons in a hotel and his dream is to become bullfighter. "El Chispa" , who works as dependent on the kiosk. Carlos that is a student, and "El Negro"" which is a shy boy. The four boys have a feel enormous of fun, but they are at that stage of adolescence in the faced steadily with the world of the elderly, As when they see a film for over 18 years and are rejected by the entrance. When Carlos the student, love with his neighbor that is older than him, and not get to pay attention, Or "El Negro" in his shyness, does not cover the relations between people who sees in his mother. The characters of the film are well represented, and another great protagonist is the scenario, in this case the streets of Madrid., and the characters varied that appear filled the film.It's in the indent the lack of Rafael Azcona, which would undoubtedly would have given that spark that bear all his scripts. I really enjoyed this film of Marco Ferreri, who along with films like "El Cochecito", and "El Pisito" form the trilogy Spanish this good director
