A great film showing the unseen racism in Spain
8 March 2003 | by (Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

Salvajes is a brutally honest film about neo-nazi racism, drugs abuses, and violence in Spain. The anti-immigration sentiments of these young, white males lead to the destruction of the moral fibers of society. The harsh style of filmmaking uses gritty film and hand-held camera effect. It all seems very real and it was very easy to get drawn into the story. In the first scene of the film, the cinematography is amazing in showing the violence being inflicted on a young black man. The shots are not all complete, but it is a mélange of shots of confusion and pain in the dark. A very moving and powerful scene in the film-and it seems to just get better from there. The characters can be related to, some trying to hold onto the little they have, while others grasping for what is out of reach. The most enjoyable character for me was Eduardo, the cop, who mixes the harsh and soft perfectly. The ending of the film is very interesting, and makes one think, potentially giving another perspective to the film. This film is brave and exciting, and should be seen. One of the better films that I have ever seen. 10/10
