Interesting independent film
4 October 2002 | by (Manresa, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** Martín is a boy who likes to run, but one day, when he returns to home, his mother (who was alcoholic) is found died because she has fallen from a window of fer home. Martín suspects that his father pushed her, so he is guilty of her death. Martín falls in love with a girl called África, and they discover that his father and her mother are lovers; África and Martín don't like it, so he decides to kill his father poisoning him.

The director, Alfonso Ungría, tries to show an own style with his first movie, and he gets it in some scenes. The cast includes the veteran Imanol Arias (the father) and good beginners like Zoe Berriatúa (Martín) and, overcoat, the great Elena Anaya (África). However, the characters change their decisions often, and you can finish to watch the movie without knowing if you liked it.
