Storyline

A group of young people dance and drink at a house. The atmosphere is festive and cheerful. Socialist victory in the general elections of 1982 seems recent. The night is full of euphoria and celebration. The attempt of coup d etat made in 1981 appears to be quite far away. We could say that in Spain, in 1982, everything was future. However, the future also looks closer at enormous speed, like a black hole that devours everything in its path. Written by Anonymous

Context Needed
21 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think there is a lot of context needed for this film, and will likely only be really accessible to people from Spain, or who at least speak Spanish. This film is "about" a lot of young people enjoying their lives at a party, soon after the Socialist Party came to power in the 1980s. They seem to be having a fairly carefree time, perhaps acknowledging the optimism felt in Spain at the time. The film places as much emphasis on the music as the dialogue, and in the subtitles English version the music is subtitled ahead of the conversations between characters. There also seems to be some attempt to make this look more naturally shot, as there are lots of poorly framed close-ups and difficulty getting shots in focus. The director also inserted a lot of "errors", again I would assume to give it a more homemade feeling.

I tried to be positive but as someone living in Canada, with no connection to Spain, I felt absolutely nothing watching this film. In fact if anything, there was a sense that the future was not as bright as the people hoped. The film often cut out in the middle of scenes, and the film stock gets progressively worse throughout the movie. I would also say that it seems somewhat strange for this movie to be made in 2013. If it were from the era it portrays it could be a bit more of a "capturing the mood" piece, but unless it is supposed to be a metaphor for the post-2009 recession issues for Spain, it seems somewhat behind the times/ I have no idea who to possibly recommend this film to, but at worst it is only 67 minutes long.
