Storyline

Parents, children, brothers. A few days in Santiago, Chile, seen by three different characters: Víctor, a schoolboy who develops a crush on a stripper he sees at a club on his birthday; Silvio, Victor's older brother, hired by the club owner to be his driver and who also falls for the woman; and, Gracia, the stripper who's the boss's girlfriend and who wants out. The club owner, Don Pasqual, has many illegal enterprises and a bad heart. Víctor's impulsive puppy love, Silvio's libido, Gracia's plans, and Don Pasqual's possessiveness make for a dangerous mix.

"Los Debutantes" tells of two brothers who fall for the same women - a singer/stripper who works for a sleazy club owner - and find themselves embroiled in a mess of love, sex, murder, extortion, and more. This two hour flick tells its story three times, each from the perspective of one of three different characters and each time putting more meat on the bones of the plot, raising questions along the way, then answering them in the end. A cheap drama noir which can't hide its low budgetness behind its minimal cast of four, low end production value, and novel approach to story telling, "Los Debutantes" shows some talent (especially Rios who works hard in each substory), but ultimately succumbs to it's obvious lack of dinero. Probably not worth the time for most, "Los Debutantes" may have some value for foreign film buffs, especially Spanish speakers.
