Storyline

Barcelona, 1980s: in a tough urban neighbourhood inhabited by survivors and ruled by ex-legionnaires Gandhi, Fontán and Andrade - who are fighting a war for control of the streets - Nen and his friends Palito, Topo and Tostao dream of making it big in the world of rumba.

But Nen discovers why his father, El Guacho - of whom all Nen has left is the memory of his brilliance as a rumba singer - disappeared many years earlier. He learns how the relationship between his mother, Chata, and Ghandi, leader of the neighbourhood, was connected to his father's disappearance, and so Nen is forced to balance his own desire for vengeance with his longing to triumph.

Unexpected Spanish melo.
18 December 2009 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Actress Ros' bario gangs piece moves from mean streets grim to the sunny beach wedding and back.

Narration sketches in ruling Godfather Diego's Legion veterans and the blacks and Arabs murdering one another in the streets over dope. The boys rehearse their musical numbers and see young Fernández' dad in the group singing in the awful sixties film musical at the local picture house. The story takes on shape as Diego figures out that his authority is being challenged and sets up something better than the messy ending which eventuates.

Striking faced cast don't look like movie actors and the oppressive Bario setting provides atmosphere.

Molina's unspeaking morgue scene is a considerable set piece.A word for Stylish Quico Noizeux titles panning down from darkness to the menacing streets, with the credits lettered on the asphalt.
