Sensitive as well as enjoyable dramedy about brotherhood , love , guilt and redemption
Sad as well as agreeable drama with comedy dealing with fraternity , friendship and a wonderful love stories . This is a coming-of-age story concerning about three brothers : Boris (Óscar Jaenada) , Álex (Javier Pereira) and Carlos (Javier Ríos) . Both of whom are quite different : the eldest Boris results to be a womanizer , the middle one , Carlos seems to be the most responsible , as he has to take care of their brothers and the family printing , and the youngest , a too serious nerd who just achieved an university scholarship in a great city of USA , Boston , and is leaving in few days . All of then spend their last days in their mother's beach house in a small town in Spain coast , before selling it . Their daddy died and they need the money to support their mummy and their family business . But there happens a terrible deed and happenings go wrong . Several years later , the trio returns the little town , but things have changed a lot .
This is a nice film with entertaining events but also with very sad moments , but that is the reason of its perfection . Simple as well as pleasant film about youthful , including comedy , drama , emotion , along with colorful cinematography and marvelous songs . A great story in which the characters find themselves from the experiences they live . Heartfelt tale dealing with three twenty and some brothers, regarding themes of family , friendship , love and death , but done through the eyes of youth . I think is a movie that is about time , culpability , love , life and especially about death . Close Dramedy concerning about sensitive brotherhood , death , repentance , emotion , and moving romances ; including enjoyable interpretations with outcast roles were pretty well developed . As their touching love stories becomes extremely affecting , partly because it's so innocent and partly because it's under threat of being ripped apart by an unfortunate accident . It may not totally get to the heart of some of the themes it raises , but it results in an exciting fresco with social fable , thoughtful issues , juvenile lives and by the end manages to be pretty touching . Plenty of emotional and family feeling in which solidarity triumphs and humor despite the disgraces and misfortunes . This thought-provoking and brooding flick concerning sweet and heartbreaking story of three brothers , given extra power by dealing with a moving portrait of youthful ; however , the picture sometimes relies heavily on the lively relationship among three protagonists . This can be the story of many faceless and nameless youngsters in any country who live , enjoy and love themselves . It is one of those movies which make you learn about life and I enjoyed it so much , and I recommend it . Main actors and support players give splendid performances . As Oscar Jaenada is frankly well as the oldest brother that only care for girls , fun and drugs . Jaenada is considered to be one of the best Spanish actors , playing interesting roles in ¨November¨ , ¨El Juego De La Verdad¨, ¨Herencia Valdemar¨, ¨Atraco¨, ¨Descongelate¨ and especially ¨Camaron¨ ; he is nowadays making an international career with titles as ¨Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides¨, ¨Losers¨ , ¨Che , Guerrilla¨ , ¨The Limits of Control¨ , ¨After Words¨, ¨The Cold Light of Day¨ and ¨Cantinflas¨ . Their brothers are well played by Javier Pereira and Javier Rios . And their girlfriends and lovers are nicely performed by young actresses as Marta Larralde , Pilar Castro and Celia Freijeiro .
There stands out the colorful and atmospheric cinematography by Alfonso Parra , a good cameraman who photographed the successful film "The Weakness of the Bolshevik", as well as ¨Siete Minutos¨ , ¨La Bicicleta¨, ¨Nubes De Verano¨, among others . Lively as well as adequate musical score , plenty of wonderful songs , by Nacho Mastretta , a good professional who has composed soundtracks in a lot of famous movies such as ¨Torremolinos 73¨ (2003) , ¨El Gran Vázquez¨ (2010) , ¨Va a Ser Nadie Es Perfecto¨ (2006) and ¨La Hija Del Cannibal¨ (2003) . The motion picture was professionally directed by Miguel Santesmanes . Miguel is a good producer , director and writer ; a fine craftsman expert on comedy and drama as proved in ¨La Fuente Amarilla¨ (1999) Amor, Curiosidad, Prozak , Dudas¨ (2001) and this ¨Dias Azules¨(2006) .
