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...

The Most Beautiful Film in Years
28 April 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Astonishing!!! I 've seen this feature at Torino Film Festival last week. It's certainly the most beautiful film I've seen in many years. Wonderful script with fresh and smart dialogs, solid structure and several great stories that made me think quite a lot after the screening in a very unusual optimistic way. Outstanding, moving and fairly realistic performances by the whole cast (and they are about 40) Smart, wise and challenging directing putting the audience right in the center of the questions on the film, feeling so close to characters and in an amazing active role. Beautiful, plenty of different textures and colorful cinematography. Fresh and creative editing. Brilliants songs taking you to the right place always. The film has a lot of moving perfectly crafted scenes. It's the very first time a film moved me to tears in the present decade (maybe more) but there's a lot of fun inside the film also and you leave the theater feeling more freedom and wanting to chase your own piece of happiness. I must recommend this feature to everyone. Don't even think of missing Spinnin'.
