Drugs as a social problem
15 May 2005 | by joelsegarraSee all my reviews

This little movie is worth seeing if interested on grass-roots movements to get something done about people real problems.

It is based on a true story about a handful of mothers with drug-addicted sons who fought not only to improve their lives but also fought against the drug-dealers denouncing publicly who they were in the context of late eighties Galicia where the benefits of illegal traffic were legendary.

Adriana Ozores carries the weight of the film as the lead rebellious mother. Pity is this Ken Loachesque offering by Gerardo Herrero is somewhat confusing trying to be epic at times when in reality everything was really sordid. If realism is not enough for a full length-feature film, maybe shooting the same real story as a documentary would have been really something.
