Young men with no future have little in the present as well. Natale is released from prison: he takes up with his friends again but none can find work. Claudio, from Palermo, gets out of juvenile detention in Naples and he's met by Vita, a girl who's come from home to run away with him. Where can they go? A young dad, whose potato stall at the market is shut down because he has no permit, takes his two small children to the beach and yells at them. Mario, gay, a prostitute in drag, gets a visit from his mom; he offers tea, then finds the water to his apartment is shut off. Social workers drop by, parole officers file reports. What hope is there? What options besides crime? Written by
I've been looking for info on this film for awhile, but it never showed up on a search until now. I saw this movie under the name 'Chicos De La Calle' in Spain in 1992 and it is an interesting character study of some aimless young adults. Can't really call them kids, and the only innocence they retain is a semblance of childhood ignorance. When I saw Larry Clark's Kids I was immediately reminded of this film. Less crude by far than Kids, Chicos de la Calle never the less leaves you with same question: "Why do things turn out like they do?"
