A great look at teenage life and friendship in the marginated side of Madrid. Beautifully made.
15 May 2003 | by (GIBRALTAR) – See all my reviews

One of the best films of Director Eloy de la Iglesia. A document of Madrid in the 1980's and life in the most conflict areas around. A story of teenagers struggling to survive.

Rosario, Antonio's sister (Jose's girlfriend) is pregnant. Due to their life circumstances and the fear of revealing the truth to her parents they decide the best thing is an abortion. Unfortunately this requires money which they don`t have, but need to find. Antonio and Jose (life long friends) will do anything to obtain it.A good film with a great photography.

It contains some strong scenes of nudity, teenage sex and drugs. Dramatic, realistic and beautifully made movie.
