Interesting hand-held documentary-like dirty and sad love story
This film follows the Odyssey of a Cuban girl, Dolores who follows her friend, Lazaro who immigrated to Spain and got imprisoned after trying to rape a girl on the street (actually in her flat after threatening her in her car with a saw pressed to her neck). Dolores visits Lázaro in the prison and even smuggles heroin in there for him. There, in a dirty cell each time they make love they do it so desperately as it were the last time. She lives by a Spanish woman whom she meets at the airport and who has a very messy life. In fact, we see only messy lives in the movie. Then Dolores applies for a sewing job at a good-hearted fellow named Paco and moves into his house. They get together and decide to make a family...
There are some very graphic lesbian as well as heterosexual scenes, be warned. Still I found the main characters interesting and original enough to sit through the movie.
