José Luis López Vázquez,
a small , intimate movie about little people with small dreams. i had a few of my friends watching this film. everyone liked it on a different level. there are some touching characters in the plot. especially i liked Johny's girlfriend. isn't she something. and Spanish always help. it's the perfect language for this movie. especially if u understand Spanish. i think everyone can find a little bit of himself in some of the characters. if not, it's a shame. it all happens in the millennium eve. everyone wants to feel a bit special this time of the year. the rich and the poor. there are some different stories, which end up connecting to one another. Johny is a provincial guy. he is "criminal light", but he is not a bad person. his girlfriend ,another provincial girl ,thinks he is her way out of her miserable life. he lives with his crazy mom and young brother. during this eve he stills the car of a bourgeois, wealthy man. during this eve he (and the rest of the characters) will go through a funny / sad night, which will make u, the spectators, think about your life. enjoy . Ido
