Storyline

It is summertime in a blue-collar, marginal district of a city in the South of Spain. Tano, a teenager currently serving a sentence in a juvenile reform center, is given a 48-hour leave to attend his brother's wedding. Together with his best friend Richi, Tano plans to enjoy his 48-hour pass to the limit, doing all the things he is normally prohibited from doing. He gets drunk, takes drugs, steals, has sex and hangs out with his buddies. He feels free and exerts that freedom with all the force and audacity of a teenager. By the end of his 48-hour pass, Tano has also witnessed the collapse of all the things he takes for granted in his life: the neighborhood, his family, friends and loved-ones - everything is somehow different for him. More than just two days of freedom, Tano's leave turns out to be a journey into maturity. Written by Sutherland, Cristina

Most likable for the youthful public
15 May 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I saw this film because I only was interested. It seemed to me that it would be quite good. But I was mistaken. The argument is not bad, but it would be possible to be improved.

The direction is very good, and some actors also are. Jesús Carroza as Richi is spectacular, is very funny and he acts very very good. He's great in this film. He deserved that Goya award. The other actors are also good, but Juan José Ballesta is not. Apparently, he thinks that he can receive another Goya award, as he did in 2001 in "El Bola". He is a good actor, but in this film I didn't like him.

The film in itself is not bad (I think it's fair that it did not get the Goya award) but I would not like to have to see it more than once. It would never do that.

The youthful public will love this movie, but not the adults, I think. Perhaps, if you see this movie, you won't be sorry, but I sincerely didn't like it much. See it if you are interested in films about vain and insolent boys.
