great film, very entertaining
27 June 2000 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Amazing film, which can combine a thrilling story with an incredibly accurate social picture of life in Madrid in the 1970's, along with an intelligent insight of the socially marginated, as "Jaro" is represented to be. Great dialogue parts and unforgettable characters as "Jaro", "el nene", or "el Marqués". No one should miss it.
