Storyline

Carlos is a young student, just 21. Nice or annoying as he likes, enjoys provoking and transgreding. In the night he goes out to meet his friends in the Kronen, a bar. Every situation can be taken a little farther. There are no limits, no accepted barriers. And more each time, each adventure is chained to the next, as if it were a continuous night. A long description of people: grandfather, parents, sister, girlfriend, friends. And, among that, the obscure will of living every minute as if it were the last one. But something which happens puts Carlos and his friend against a reality they have been trying to ignore. Written by <oscar.esteban@p4.virtual.encomix.com>

The film making of new kind of literature at the end of the century in Spain.
8 February 2000 | by (San Francisco CA) – See all my reviews

If you have read the book Historias del Kronen and then you watch the movie, it usually happens that the book turns out to be better than the film itself. Well, in this case is also true. Juan Diego Botto became very popular by taking the role of the main character, a teenager who looks at the obscure as if it was part of him. He and his friends search night after night for anything that can bring them excitement to their lives (this is supposed to be a generation that has not yet contributed to write a single page in Spain's contemporary history due to their passive behavior, which is originated through the fulfillment of previous generations, e.g. their parents who lead Spain free after dictatorship towards democracy and liberation). The extreme situations that occur in this movie are always intentioned by this attitude, but at the end of the movie something odd happens, leaving the spectator with serious doubts about the behavior of this type of people. Is there something wrong with young generations in Spain? Or is it just the way it is supposed to be?
