This movie just draws from Mario Vargas Llosa's novel the name and what happens to the protagonist as a kid.The rest is just the silent (and I mean SILENT) and painful life of this guy as a young man who's life is destroyed: he can't study, he can't have a girlfriend. He only drinks.
Way low budget, but the actors are good (maybe not in this flick, but hey): José Alonso, María Rojo, Helena Rojo... just to name a few.

I'm sure you have better things to do than watch this movie, like, clean your drawers with Q- Tips, or something...
