"Dias azules" manages to make the most of its simple plot line. Although it's being marketed as somewhat of a comedy, this movie isn't a comedy per se. It's a coming of age movie, and a pretty good one. The soundtrack is great, and the fact that the setting is in a small town is interesting (given that a lot of movies in this vein have been set in Madrid or Barcelona lately.)I liked the fact that the relationship between the brothers wasn't over sentimentalized. "Dias azules" is a movie where not a lot happens, the characters lives are marked by one big event and then the rest of the film bares this out. I like that not all of the characters' lives are neatly wrapped up.
Also, this movie has nothing to do with the external review in Variety, about a documentary about digging up Civil War graves, also called "Dias azules."
