Storyline

A loop through the lives of three street urchins, barely into their teens, pickpockets in Barcelona. While Migue and Mara make love on a rooftop, Ahmed, a Moroccan kid who's come to Spain thinking it full of money and nude women, goes to get beer. As he leaves the bodega, a fancy car pulls up, men jump out. Ahmed shouts up to Migue, who slips on shoes and runs. The chase across the rooftops involves leaps, flights of fantasy that take us back. The fearful shout of Mara becomes the cry of Migue's mother years before. A brick of hashish stolen from a fat man brings them cash for a celebration. Beer and sex: life doesn't get any better.

Life on the roofs
9 July 2002 | by (Manresa, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

It's the story of two young lovers who live on the roofs of the houses of the neighborhood of El Raval, in Barcelona. They have an Arab friend, he's an illegal immigrant who hasn't parents either. All of them are poor, but they live thanks to love and illusion.

It was nominated for the Goya (the Spanish Academy Awards) to the best short and has won several prizes. It has a very good cinematography, good setting and a pretty style that makes the short very enjoyable.
