13-year-old Pablo is a quiet, lonely boy with a troubled past. His only friend is Julia, a shameless 15-year-old girl who is more than willing to help Pablo with his transition from childhood to adolescence, and give him some advice on sex, love and life in general. On a quiet country road just outside of the village, Pablo meets Paco, an oddly calm, well dressed stranger whose car just broke down. Nevertheless, he seems more interested in the boy than fixing his problem. At first Pablo maintains a cautious distance from the stranger, vaguely heeding his fellow villagers' advice to keep his distance. However, the boy's subconscious quest to find understanding of his dark past and guilt makes him lose all of his protective layers. He sees a new friend in Paco; someone he can open up to and feel valued by almost like a replacement father. As Pablo's affection grows for the man, he is unknowingly and blindly being lead toward a tragedy that will scar him for life Written by

The shooting of the film having taken nearly a year, and the boy actor going through the same changes as in the film, some latter scenes had to be 'tweaked' in the audio post-production to bring his voice up one semitone without changing the speed. Changes in his voice were unnoticeable in real life, but very much so at time of edit. See more »
In the context of the "world wide cinema" intellectual recession - this film stands out as a gem. The movie must not be told in any details prior to watching it-is my view. Comments around the technical aspect of movie making should be harmless though: Having to disposal high tech digital equipment these days - I would have expected more of an art work/play around the nude scenes, body shapes and more attention to lighting elsewhere. At this level of an art - more play with lights would further benefit the overall appearance of the movie which otherwise is well outside of the guttersnipes' consumption anyway. At times the contrasts on faces were on the "sharp side of things". Employing "counter soft" lighting would give that extra feel of excellently made portraits. That's on technical side of things. The film stands still firm at 10 points though since “Rambo” style movies gets also the same scores :-). Majority of films on the subject are made based on the far reaching consultations with the psycho/sociological professional teams. The result of such “out of touch with reality” studies is always a sterile movie. Such movies are indeed analytical at best. To describe this movie as such ( as i read here and there) is a brave business to provoke to be laughed at. In my view, it is not possible to make this movie without the natural inspiration on the theme flowing from within the director's heart. It almost feels as if it is an autobiographical story although the director doesn’t say that. How otherwise one could know what is inside an adolescent ripped apart by the fate. And all of it in such minute details? This film is what an art is all about and it is great news to hear that the director is working on another movie around the same theme. In the event - I can’t wait to see his "Brecha". ”En tu aucencia” is an absolute must to see. Well, at least by the better part of our society members.
