Pilar López de Ayala,
Silvia used to be a cheerful little girl until something happened when she was 8 years old. Nobody could understand the sudden change in her behavior. Now that she's 25, Silvia wants to settle scores with her traumatic past.
'Yo Soy La Juani' presents a pretty common story about two working-class girls from a Spanish provincial town, trying to make their careers in Spain's capital Madrid. The story realistically focuses on the temptations & difficulties a big city has to offer, all newly experienced by these girls.
In the end we also get a moral message: make clear choices in life and persevere by them.
The visuals truly make this film's strength. Its uncomplicated, direct shooting fully connects with the girl's lifestyle. All their joys, excitements, shocks, disappointments, annoyances, boredom and hardships are smoothly transferred to you. All set in a Spanish adolescent-scene of our times. It allows you to identify completely.
