Life imitates art
23 September 2011 | by pv61See all my reviews

Veronica Castro was probably very happy to go to Spain to make this movie, but her role is shadowed by the intense and tormented affair between another intense actress Isela Vega and the male leading "El Jaro". The movie doesn't have much of a plot. But is a good vehicle to show sex, drugs and nudity every time possible. Maybe that's why Ms Vega agreed to do it, because there was a time where she was naked in everything she appeared. Required by the script or not. The director, Eloy de la Iglesia, had his own story, because is well known that he would go looking for street kids to make starts out of them. After this movie, where Manzano ''el jaro'' debuted, more in the same style followed, including COLEGAS, where two kids of the late Lola Flores also starred. Manzano was a troublemaker in real life (just like in his movies) and that was what lost him, because getting in and out of jail often, is not a good sign.
