Storyline

Spinnin' is a wonderfully exuberant, multi-layered Spanish drama. MADRID 1995. Garate and Omar are young, gay and in love, and want to have a child. After failed attempts with their female pals, they befriend Raquel, a pregnant woman whose partner has died of aids. Sound conventional? Spinnin' is anything but. It is a wildly entertaining, inventive and cheeky film that throws the audience in the centre of these friends' chaotic lives, and celebrates being alive. Garate and Omar are surrounded by myriad colourful characters: from new-born babies to Garate's 60 plus father who is falling in love again; to two policemen who list things that are important to them, in the desire that their lists match up; to a couple who are either kissing each other, or fighting - both with equal passion; and many, many others. There's not a dull minute in this whirlwind of a film. Surrender to the charms of Spinnin' and you will leave the cinema wanting to embrace each other, dance and throw your arms up...

A beautiful and magical journey through human heart
25 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this feature at Boston MFA last month… What an experience!!! Absolutely outstanding!!! One of the most complex and solid scripts I've ever seen on screen. Strange but beautifully human characters told us a story about people chasing their small pieces of happiness. A whole bunch of remarkable and brave characters deliver the audience a delicious dish with all the ingredients to make you think about quite a number of important issues of modern life in many different points of view.

SPINNIN' is a honest but optimistic painting of the human heart. The characters say "Love has sharp edges. Wound keeps you alive." several times as a chorus. I agree from the bottom of my heart, but, like "some kind of magic" you leave the cinema wanting to chase your own dreams, having a more optimistic way to look the rest of the human kind and hoping to enjoy the next relationship whatever it takes.

Alternately amusing and poignant. SPINNIN' is a beautiful mix of hard situations making people cry and smartly funny scenes making people laugh a lot with surprisingly ingenous ideas. (Maybe too many for 110 minutes). A whirlwind of emotions, delightful scenes with wonderfully written dialogs and amazing performances for the whole cast.

The stories are told in a charming cheeky way keeping you so close to the characters and making real easy to identify with them and their problems. Stunning images and a beautiful soundtrack, plenty of envolving and rocking songs, dress the salad.

I must confess that I'd never thought about fatherhood among gay men as an appropriate condition. Watching SPINNIN' I realize for the very first time how normal, "natural" and appropriate it can be.

I definitely agree, nobody should miss SPINNIN'. It's real quality material and one of the most enjoyable experiences in that last years cinema.
