Donostia in the 80's and a different Basque Country
27 November 2006 | by leakimnossrepSee all my reviews

This movie is worth seeing not so much for the story or the acting. Instead it is worthwhile seeing for the portrait it gives of the city of San Sebastian or Donostia in the eighties.

The city is today a quiet posh beach resort and commercial center for the province of Gipuzkoa and southern France. The medium age is very high and there are as many people in the age group 0-19 as in the age group 65+. But in the eighties this place was a vibrant city.

In some scenes in the film you can see the riots or kale borroka in the old part between young Basque nationalists and the Spanish police. The punk-rockers and the junkies passes by and you get to see how the city looked like twenty years ago. It is a treat! But it also shows in a low key manner the enormous drug problem that prevailed in the Basque Country during the eighties. If you have the opportunity you should see it.
