Miguel Ángel Silvestre,
Three friends, two young men and a young woman, are bored by the normal world of their parents and want to flee in order to start living somewhere else. Thus they make a pervert plan: rob their own families. After that they flee without any destination and without having really planned where to go to. Written by
Mariano Barroso, the director of this film doesn't break any new ground with it. Perhaps because the screen play he wrote with Joaquin Oristell doesn't hold any surprises for the viewer. No doubt there might have been good ideas as a project, but as it plays on the screen, it loses its viewers early on.
Naturally, the only interest in watching this Spanish feature were Javier Bardem and Federico Luppi, two of the most interesting actors working in the cinema these days. But alas, nothing makes much sense, or really grabs the viewer's attention. The mercurial theater director, Daniel, played by Mr. Luppi fares much better than Bardem, whose appearance will not add anything to his fine work in better films than this.
Watch it at your own risk.
