A beautiful soundtrack for a good realistic movie.
A good look at the delinquency in Spain of the 80's, good photography, great soundtrack.
Pablo, Angela, El Meca and Sebas, four marginalized teenagers from Madrid are forced to live a life of crime in order to survive and escape the poverty they live in. The movie is quite entertaining, the crime scenes are very realistic, the soundtrack fits just perfect and the message is clear and powerful.
Crime is created by poverty and poverty is created by luxury, something we are all responsible of.
A great political statement, then and now.
