I saw this film in an art house in Dublin, Ireland. It represents a coming of age story that smacks of Y Tu Mama Tambien. It is in your face sexuality of a teen trying to come to grips with the world. It doesn't surprise me that many people haven't seen the film, and I am surprised strong stories like these every see the light of day. On the other hand, it details the emergence of a young man as an individual, separate from his parents, defining himself. I would really like to see more from this director as well as be able to get this film on DVD.
