Interesting and thought-provoking look about youthful delinquency in Spain from the 80s
23 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Intelligent and thrilling film based on facts about juvenile delinquency in Spain since the 80s . Well directed by Carlos Saura who tried to create a sort of Spanish Neo-Realism by tackling the juvenile delinquency in the Madrid's poor quarters from a sociological point of view. In his second stage dealing with delinquents , the first was ¨Los Golfos¨, he tried to take a position in observation of outcast people, and he got to make a documentary-style cinema. It deals with a group of inseparable friends delinquents named Pablo (Valdelomar) , Meca , El Sebas forced into street hustling and ever-expanding life of crime . The three of them carry out car-thief and scheme bank-robbery to earn money in and around Madrid slums . So, they'll have to gather some money and in order to do anything that's necessary to escape the poverty and also as part of the street life they have drugs . The young street-criminals in Madrid embark on a series of armed robberies to raise the money that they use to rise their existence . Meanwhile, Pablo falls in love for a bar girl named Angela (Socuellamos) and gather together with their friends . The protagonists choose to live dangerously and they are forced to live a life of crime to survive and flee the suburbs of Madrid.

¨Deprisa , Deprisa¨ is one of several movies dealing with youth delinquency in Spain during the 70s and early 80s along with ¨Perros Callejeros I and II¨, ¨Navajeros , "Colegas" ,"El Pico", "El Pico 2" and later ¨La Estanquera De Vallecas ¨ , among others . These films were notorious in the years of the Spanish transition to democracy including provoking and polemic issues and played by unknown young people . His style is pretty much urban and realistic as well in the atmosphere as in the fresh dialog and attempted to take a position in favor of outcast people . Drugs , delinquency, and generational problems are the habitual subjects in these films and specially dedicated to the underworld of heroin . Passing of time hasn't had mercy with most of those movies , but they represented a time and a way of life in the history of Spain ; and now they may seem a little bit naive . In ¨ Deprisa , Deprisa¨ or ¨Fast , faster¨ we watch the day-by-day of a group of delinquents committing violent crimes , however Saura got to make a both lyric and documentary-style flick . A great look at young life and friendship in the margined side let the story flow efficiently and being realized in realistic style . We see their troubles growing in such a low-class "barrio" called Vallecas from Madrid outskirts and some fine locations . The director creates a sort of Spanish Neo-Realism by tackling the juvenile delinquency in the Madrid's poor quarters from a sociological point of view . Carlos Saura shows the ugliness of those "barrios" , toughness and cold existence . The screenplay is such strong with disagreeable events , including a love story and violent scenes , though also with some ingenuousness , but in 1980, a few years after General Franco died it wasn't naive at all. Saura chose young and natural actors as Valdelomar and Socuellamos who play their part to the hilt , unafraid of filmmaker's unsympathetic camera and the particularity of the characters. Passable photography with juicy atmosphere by Teo Escamilla , deemed one of the best Spanish cameraman , but unfortunately turns too much murky in some video print , being necessary a a correct remastering . Musical score includes a lot of flamenco songs by that time with the successful Los Chichos.

The motion picture is well directed by Carlos Saura , a good Spanish movies director. He began working in cinema in 1959 when he filmed ¨Los Golfos ¨(1962) also dealing with juvenile delinquency . Saura is a well recognized filmmaker both nationally and internationally, and in proof of it he won many prizes among which there are the following ones: Silver Bear in the Berlin Festival for ¨ La Caza or The Chase¨ (1966) his most successful film , and for Peppermint Frappé (1967), in 1967. Special Jury Awards in Cannes for La Prima Angélica (1974), in 1973, and for Cría Cuervos (1976), in 1975. Also, the film Mamá Cumple Cien Años (1979) got an Oscar nomination in 1979 as the best foreign film, and it also won the Special Jury Award at the San Sebastian Festival. In 1990, he won two Goya , The Spanish Oscar , as best adapted screenplay writer and best director. Saura became an expert on Iberian musical adaptations as ¨Carmen , Amor Brujo , Bodas De Sangre , Sevillanas ,Iberia , Salome, Fado, Flamenco ¨ and even recently Opera as ¨Io , Don Giovanni¨
