Juan Jose Moreno Cuenca a.k.a. El Vaquilla died this past Friday from an illness caused by aids.As I said before he was the only surviver left from a generation marked by Delinquency and Heroin.Caught in a life of crime ever since he was 8 years old he became a hero of the underworld,a modern Robin Hood.When other kids learned how to read and write in schools,he learned how to steal cars and drive.With only 10 he was the best driver around.His life was brought to the screen in the 1977 film `Perros Callejeros` and later in `Yo,El Vaquilla` which was based on his first book.Since then he became the most famous delinquent in Europe. He spent most of his life behind bars and was let free only 8 days before he died.He was due to come out in 2007.El Vaquilla was never a loser,he was a fighter and he fought until the end.On his second and last book called `Until my Liberty` written in prison, he explained what went on inside the prisons over this past 20 years,he was brutally bitten for that.Now he rests in peace beside his brothers and friends who left him way back,victims of drugs, H.I.V and the police.
This film has to be edited on DVD as soon as possible.Its a classic crime movie and very entertaining.
