This Spanish movie presents the last twenty-seven hours of the life of the beautiful Maribel Verdu (in the beginning of her career) and Martxelo Rubio. Antonio Banderas, also in the beginning of his career, is a drug dealer and the three teenagers are drug addicted. The movie shows problematic young persons, spending time on the streets, looking for small jobs to get enough money for drugs and beer and drugging themselves. Maite (Maribel Verdu) loves Jon (Martxelo Rubio), but stays with Rafa (Antonio Banderas) since he is a drug dealer, who feeds her addiction. Many other characters appears during these twenty-seven hours in this Spanish city with gray sky. The tragedy in the end of the story is announced since the beginning of the plot. An average European drama movie, recommended to those who like drug-related theme and fans of Maribel Verdu and Antonio Banderas. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Jogo da Vida" ("Game of the Life")
