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

Really great film from Spain!
23 March 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this at the Toronto Film Festival in 2005. It is an excellent film- tight story, exciting, rich characters, phenomenal acting...from NON-ACTORS. Reminiscent of KIDS but so much better because these guys love women, instead of trying to infect them. Has the same fast pace, families that disappoint, meeting up with friends, harm, trouble, petty crime. The story is basically about a teen and what he does on leave from juvenile hall/prison for the weekend, somewhere in Spain. So, so, so good!! Why hasn't this been distributed?? It would do well in the theatres and certainly on DVD if it had advertising. I was amazed with the quality of this film and that it had not been seen by many audiences. Someone should pick up this film.
