The beginning of Spanish new cinema
7 September 2000 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of the 80´s Spanish cinema changed: a small group of artists (also in Music and other arts subjects) created works in a new, cool and refreshing way. The Spanish new democracy (five years old) was surprised by this young comedy where past is forgotten, where old fashioned pseudo-hippy culture is joked and described in an very particular funny way. This movie shows that Spanish young people obsessions are still the same: sex, friendship, sex, success and sex. Perhaps, for non-Spanish speakers is a quite difficult language to direct-translating and understanding. But I advise you to try it.
