Powerful, depressing
14 September 2009 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a strong drama set in a Barcelona tourists and probably many residents of that city never see. It takes place in and around a public housing project inhabited by Arabs, Africans, and Gypsies. The central character is a young handicapped man entranced by rap music. His best friend is an African who has a difficult relationship with the father he lives with, along with a persistent drug problem. Both of these people make their living through petty crime, but decide they will now hustle toward a goal: opening a rap music studio. Through trial and error, they almost do so, only to see their dream studio literally go up in smoke when they are falsely suspected by a local gangster of having robbed him. This film is a powerful, downbeat depiction of people who survive--but barely.
