Urban tale
11 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story of three friends, Rai, Javi and Manu, with a common factor: they live in the same 'Barrio',(neirbourhood), and the three of them want to scape from it. They all come from distorted families, Javi's parents have marital problems, while Manu lives just with his father and he has a brother who never calls or visits. Ray's is a typical working class family. The story takes place in a Madrid suburb, in the summer season, where the three of them decide to make money out of anything. They sell flowers, that they steal, Manu becomes a pizza delivery boy, and Ray is a small drug dealer. The story is as sad as funny, because life is not always sad, not always fun, but a bit of both. It shows a side of Madrid that the tourists won't see in a visit: the underground ghosts, the junkies under the bridge.... The dialogues are so good, that they seem improvised. This is one of the best films of Fernando De Leon Aranoa, but it's also recommendable 'Familia', one of those stories that you'll remember.
