Coming of age, on a Barcelona beach, during an eventful week: Nico arrives at Dani's for part of the summer. Dani's parents are away, Nico is keen to lose his virginity, and Dani, who's been Nico's friend since grammar school, wants time only with Nico. Dani's plans to hunt and fish are waylaid when Nico catches the eye of Elena and her cousin Berta. He wants to go to the beach with the girls, cook them dinner, and make love to at least one of them. Dani wants social and physical contact with Nico. Watching from a short distance are Sonia, Dani's tutor, and Julian, a gay writer, who picks up Dani's vibes.

Artless but honest
8 November 2003 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Krampack is a straightforward depiction of the sexual experiences, and personal friendship, of two Spanish boys. The young actors do well (though the supporting cast is less strong), and real, human characters are depicted without resource to cliche or over-hyped melodrama. But somehow the film lacks a bit of zim. There is a plot, but there's little change in the mood of the piece as it develops, the film beings engagingly but fails to subsequently raise our involvement. The odd separation of the work into 'chapters', interspersed by funny quotes taken from the subsequent action, is also a wholly unnecessary device in a story that is not at all episodic, and doesn't help the film attain climax (no pun intended). Still, there are also many positives in this film - it's humourous, unmoralistic, and fundamentally optimistic too. With a little more drive it could have been great.
