Comedy with startling view of 60's Spain
1 January 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Paco's father needs 10,000 Ptas to get his taxi back from the mechanic, and Paco has a job in a bank. In this fairy tale of early 60's Spain, the little boy just walks off with the money, and virtually the whole of the wrong side of town go looking for him, along with the police. Socially the film touches on the differences between the lives of the wealthy and the poor, the scavengers who live from sorting through rubbish dumps, the extravagant fiestas with their music, fireworks and dancing.
