One of the Worst National Movies
13 January 2003 | by (Buenos Aires,Argentina) – See all my reviews



It´s really one of the worst Argentine movies of all times. I have almost never seen something like this before. It pretends to put in a mirror a bunch of kids with broken homes, money troubles, showing they still have dreams. All this movie shows real life in a very fake way, I just don´t buy the way leather jackets actors behave.
