A character , An environment , A feeling
17 October 2007 | by (Cambridge, USA) – See all my reviews

It seems that the writers of the previous comments are missing the point. This is a European movie: it means that you should not expect action karate , no chemical attack on the white house and no drug dealers shooting helicopters with smuggled missiles from Kazakhstan.

This movie is all about feelings. Since the very first minute you are plunged in the world of Juani, a young and determined Spanish adolescent from the suburbs of a southern city in Spain, looking for a better future. The story shows the reality of youths expectations and disillusions.

The powerful soundtrack, mixing Hispanic hip-hop with traditional flamenco songs, will transport you in the world of "La Juani".

Enjoy
