Ambicious but Disappointing. Taking the baseline that most people in the whole movie were newbies trying to make his own work-style in the new context of democracy, and with the ambitious idea to show up the worst side of Barcelona and get his place on the uprising "kinki cinema", the final result is far enough from good. The story is about a young woman trying to leave delinquency, drugs and abuses, and finding no help but deception from anyone. It is explained in plain terms and well common topics but still it fails to connect with any audience. The characters are also well defined and sharp minded, but cannot perform better in the overall movie design. The first time I saw it I thought there was a small connection with "Notti di Cabiria" and similar realistic cinema and social criticism, but it falls to a movie action that could happen in any place of the world, in any city and circumstance, so loosing very soon any interest. Recommended for anyone who likes "spanish kinki cinema" and to laugh a little, but it does not deserve much apart from this.
