More authentic and gripping than the Luc beson TAXI
30 April 2001 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

A frightening tale of racism and resurgent fascism in Madrid in the late '90s. Essential viewing for people interested in the 'New Europe" and all the baggage that comes with it. The movie presents no answers, just observations...

I saw it late one night on irish TV - dunno if it's available on video.
