Decent look at juvenile delinquency about a kid who committed lots of crimes in the eighties
6 May 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

In this flick based on real events and dealing with a child delinquent , there is frenetic action , eroticism , chases , exploitation and sensationalism that undermine verisimilitude . It tells his life like a legend , executing heists , assaults , child driving cars , escapades , and other crimes and misdemeanours . The picture results to be a peculiar biopic of Spain's Juan Carlos Delgado "El Pera" (Borja Navas) , a 11-year-old young delinquent in the 1980's who committed more than 150 crimes . Outspoken ¨El Pera¨ lives with his family (daddy well played by Fernando Tejero , and mummy stunningly performed by Mariola Fuentes) , but at the same time , carries out robbing and heists at malls , and after a frenetic car pursuit is detained by a corrupt police nicknamed ¨El Señorito¨ (José Luis García Pérez) . As ¨El Pera¨ is chased , locked-up , mistreated and accused for robbing ; after being led to a youthful penitentiary run by an upright official (Alex Casanovas) but he gets away . Juan Carlos Delgado is a car pilot and a sport journalist nowadays .

This is an acceptable drama with action elements , adding a bit of social habits from lower classes living in Madrid suburbs . Being compellingly acted and concerning the narration about the relationship between ¨El Pera¨ and his family , gang members and an older woman . Inspired by an actual case , giving a realistic look at delinquency world ; it contains noisy action , hold-ups , car races , pursuits and nudism . ¨Volando Voy¨ or "My Quick Way Out" belongs to sub-genre Quinqui , whose main representation was ¨Perros Callejeros I¨ , this one was a popular and big Spanish hit , that's why its director Jose Antonio De La Loma made several sequels . Drugs , delinquency , terrorism and generational problems are the habitual themes in this genre , and specially dedicated to the underworld of heroin . Seen today , these films are unique documents on how life was lived and perceived during that period . These flicks were notorious in the years of the Spanish transition to democracy including provoking and polemic issues and played by unknown young people . This ¨Volando Voy¨ is a return to the 80s , it is one of several movies dealing with youth delinquency in Spain during the 70s and early 80s mostly realized by Jose Antonio De La Loma , along with ¨Navajeros , "Colegas", "El Pico 1¨ , 2" , ¨La Estanquera De Vallecas¨ by Eloy De La Iglesia and especially ¨Deprisa , Deprisa¨ by Carlos Saura , among others . "My Quick Way Out" is full of engaging moments , regarding lower-class people and older woman younger man peculiar relationship , including nudism in charge of Mar Regueras . The picture is a crossed-over from Quinqui sub-genre along with family drama ; being well-paced in great sense of narration and fairness . The film attempts to describe the juvenile delinquency of the 80s , but also including familiar discussions , father mistreating and many other things . Not trying to be unrealistic and make everything as in a domestic tale but giving way to thought-provoking issues well represented on Alex Casanovas character and his attempt to create special penitentiaries for very young delinquents . In addition , the film gives us a nice panorama about a lower-class family , with an understanding mother and a violent father , as well as its pity , goodness , sacrifice , work , shortage , and various situations happen in its existence . The screenplay by the same Juan Carlos Delgado and director Miguel Albaladejo is such strong with disagreeable events , including nudism , violent scenes , though also with some ingenuousness and brief ironical moments . The main cast and support cast are pretty well , such as : Fernando Tejero , Alex Casanovas , Mar Regueras , José Luis García Pérez and Mariola Fuentes who played various films shot by Albadalejo .

There stands out the colorful and atmospheric cinematography by Alfonso Sanz , a good cameraman who has photographed most films directed by Albadalejo , filmed in Madrid and Toledo where takes place a spectacular car pursuit . Lively as well as adequate musical score -including catching songs of the 80s- by Lucio Godoy , a good professional who has composed soundtracks in a lot of successful movies such as ¨All about my mother¨, ¨Blackthorn¨, ¨Fin¨, ¨Amador¨. ¨Cuento Chino¨, ¨Mataharis¨ , ¨Melissa P¨ , among others . Besides , attractive songs at the end . The motion picture was professionally directed by Miguel Albadalejo , a fine craftsman expert on comedy and drama as proved in ¨Bear Club¨, ¨Rencor¨, ¨Ataque Verbal¨ , ¨Cielo Abierto¨, ¨The first life of my life¨, and this ¨Volando Voy¨ , among others . Rating : 6.5/10 . Better than average . It turns out to be much better than the 80's films starred by actual delinquents as ¨El Torete¨, ¨El Vaquilla¨, ¨El Nani¨ , all of them early deceased . The flick will appeal to Spanish cinema buffs . Worthwhile seeing .
