Raw
9 January 2002 | by (The Hague, Holland) – See all my reviews

This is a grim, raw and realistic movie about life in a poor neighborhood of a Spanish industry-city. You see a girl (who's in a gang) that can't take it anymore, fed up with the life she lives, full of violence and drugdealing. It's realistic, the acting is good, the camera-work isn't bad either. But to really like a film, it at least needs a little sense of humour in it, in my opinion, and I can't remember any. 6/10
