Storyline

Born in a poor neighborhood, Tony hides hides behind the image of a tough woman. She has a boyfriend, Juanjo, and two pals, a strange couple formed by Maxi, who is obsessed with martial arts, and moco, a terminal junkie. They all decide to hold up a Lottery Administration in Madrid. But Juanjo has another plan: he's going to betray his two friends and escape with Tony and the money. They start their runaway to the South with the excuse of taking Laura, Juanjo's seven year old niece, to see her father, a flamenco singer. But at the beginning of the trip, with Maxi, Moco and the police on their tail, Tony is betrayed by her boyfriend who disappears with the money, abandoning her and Laura in a dismal road side restaurant. With their pursuers close behind them, Tony and Laura are forced to keep running. In the course of their journey, the initial distrust between them will turn into a deep friendship.

Thrilling and emotive story about a long chase in which a young woman and a little girl are pursued by two nasty delinquents
28 March 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Drama/thriller set in marvelous region of Andalucia dealing with an interminable and relentless pursuit . It packs drama , emotion , action , violent events but also some brief elements of humor . Interesting movie with nice performance by Laia Marull and extraordinary support cast as Juan Diego , Maria Galiana , Silvia Espigado , among others . Born in a miserable barrio , Tony (Laia Marull) has a sweetheart called Juanjo (Olmedo) , and two pals , a quirky pair formed by Maxi (Miguel Hermoso Arnau , director's son) , who is obsessed with martial arts , and Moco (Roberto Cairo), a terminal druggie . They all decide to rob a Lottery Administration in Madrid . But Juanjo has another scheme : he's going to double-cross his two colleagues and getaway with Tony and the cash . Both of them begin their escape to the South with the excuse of taking Laura (Beatriz Colonel) , Juanjo's seven year old niece and prostitute (Silvia Espigado)'s daughter , to see her father (Juan Diego) , a flamenco singer . But at the beginning of the journey , with Maxi , Moco and the police on their trail , Tony is deceived by her fiancé who disappears with the loot , leaving her and Laura in a dismal road side restaurant . With their pursuers close behind them , Tony and Laura are forced to keep running . In the course of their journey , the initial distrust between them will become into a marvelous mother-daughter relationship .

From start to finish this moving film contains drama , intrigue , thrills , a wonderful and deep friendship and a lot of Flamenco songs . Nice film , though overlong and has a few gaps , but anyway, its is compensated with the great performances from Laia Marull as a sensitive girl who hides behind the image of a tough woman , Juan Diego as a selfish singer and Maria Galiana as an old spinster , interpreters who provided a considerable boost to the result . This is a thriller/drama that keeps you interested and expecting , including a tragic familiar relationship . Laia Marull and the newcomer little girl named Beatriz Colonel star in the sort of story we've seen sometime before , a young newly betrayed escapes , while other people seek reckoning , but one that is always fun when executed with style and filmmaker Miguel Hermoso certainly seems to have that . Acceptable Spanish film with top-notch performances from main cast as well as secondary cast who includes notorious actors as Roberto Cairo , Silvia Espigado , Santiago Ramos , Antonio Dechent , among others . Emotive as well as evocative musical score by Antonio Meliveo , including Flamenco songs sung by Niña Pastori and many others . Colorful cinematography by Tote Trenas , reflecting splendidly outdoors and cities from Andalucia , such as Carmona, Sevilla , Caños De Meca, Chipiona, Algeciras , Cádiz, Puente Genil, Córdoba, Puerto Santa María, Tarifa, Cádiz .

The motion picture was well directed by Miguel Hermoso , being filmed in his usual formal and stylistic scholarship , without leaving a trace the thought-provoking issues , in terms of dramatic and narrative excitement . Miguel Hermoso is an expert on comedy as proved in ¨Loco Veneno¨, ¨Truanes¨ , ¨Marbella¨ and drama such as ¨Como Un Relampago¨, the biopic ¨Lola¨, ¨Luz Prodigiosa¨ and his greatest hit was this ¨Fugitivas¨ . Rating : 7 , good movie . The picture will appeal to thriller/drama aficionados .
