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
Tano is a young guy that has a 48 freedom ticket due to the wedding of his brother, and the he will return with his friends and he wants to enjoy as much as possible his time, but soon he will realize that the time he has spend in prison ill not return and that the world has moved without him and now is his turn to become an adult. Well the movie is not bad, it is not boring, the story in not bad, but, well is the typical story of the suburban young boy, margined, insolent, stupid and with an enormous stubbornness that makes him to not become anything better. Ballesta makes quite well his part, the same as always and Carroza plays surprisingly well (Goya totally deserved), the others are just correct, nothing more. The movie has come with lots of rumors to be good, and I think they were a little exaggerated, the movie is not bad, it is entertaining but it adds anything new to the cinema. THe story is the same as always and it is quite expected. There are many better films to watch to, but this one is not disgusting.
