Romantic flick packed with a twisted romance , catching songs , violence and motorcycle races
17 August 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Exciting drama plenty of emotion , thrills , fights and a deep love story , being based on the novel of the same name by Federico Moccia. Mario Casas leads the cast of this ¨Three Meters Above The Sky¨ the story of two young people who belong to different worlds ; this one starts with a misfit , impulsive , unconscious young man nicknamed ¨H¨ (Mario Casas) , leader of a band of violent teenagers . Meanwhile , H is reconnecting with the past so that it means fighting and also a new love . When he is driving his powerful motorcycle he meets a beautiful teenager , Babi (Maria Valverde), the girl from upper-middle class that was educated in goodness and innocence . Babi reluctant at first but finally falls in love for him . Along the way , ¨H¨ gets mixed up with some tough as well as bad guys and is embodied in endless struggles and illegal motorbike races .

Sensitive as well as romantic drama is loaded with an enjoyable love story , soap opera , lingering shots of wonderful as well as youthful faces , twisted situations and with a distinctly Spanish idiosyncrasy . It is the chronicle of a love improbable , almost impossible between two maladjusted young people : Mario Casas and Maria Valverde but inevitable dragging in a frantic journey of family opposition , motorcycle races , difficult romance and full of violence . Although is filled with predictability and cliché-ness the film results out to be pretty entertaining , but overlong . It turns out to be pleasantly fun that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever ; an exercise in pure escapism in which entertainment and thrilling happenings are guaranteed .

Passable acting by Mario Casas as Hache , a rebellious boy who has an appetite for risk and danger in the limit of common sense , a ¨rebel without a cause¨ , in James Dean'style . This is Mario Casas's most important screen appearance in screen and pretty well Marta Valderde as the inexperienced and innocent adolescent . And agreeable and charming Marina Salas as Katina , her best friend . As shown in the film, H and Babi develop a relationship , and actually the two actors developed a relationship of their own in 2010 , though it is known that the two broke up in September of 2014 ; and subsequently Marta Valverde married to prestigious musical conductor Gustavo Dudamel . As you should be aware , than similar from US films with romantic touches , you do get to see people having sex in this , not explicit , but there are naked bodies , and some strong sexual scenes . Ample support cast formed by newcomers who would have an acceptable and uneven career , such as Nerea Camacho , Alvaro Cervantes of ¨Carlos I¨ series , Andrea Duro of ¨Olmos and Robles¨ series , Pablo Rivero of ¨Cuentame¨ series , Diego Martín , and Cristina Plazas , Jordi Bosch as parents of Bibi . Colorful and glimmer cinematography by Daniel Aranyó . Being shot on location in Mataró , El Prat De Llobregat , Teià , Montgat , Sant Boi De Llobregat , L'Hospitalet De Llobregat , Santa Cristina D'Aro , Barcelona, Catalonia , Girona, Catalonia , Spain . In addition , atmospheric and moving musical score by Manel Santisteban , adding commercial and attractive songs .

Being based on Federico Moccia bestseller book . Federico is a Best-seller writer and occasionally director , known for ¨Amore 14¨ , ¨Scusa Ma Ti Voglio Sposare¨ , ¨Tre Metri Sopra Il Cielo¨ (2004) He also wrote several scripts as ¨Palla Al Centro¨ , ¨Ho Voglia Di Te¨ , ¨Classe Mista 3A¨ and ! Cannibal holocaust 2 ¡ . ¨Perdona Si Te Llamo Amor¨ . The motion picture ¨Tres Metros Sobre el Cielo¨ or "Three Steps Above Heaven" (2010) was professionally directed by the Spanish filmmaker Fernando González Molina . And he also made the sequel : ¨Tengo Ganas De Ti¨ (2012) , in which ¨H¨ falls for a gorgeous dancer called Gin , Clara Lago , but he discovers again his first great love : Maria Valverde . He went on directing successes as the $13.5 million period drama "Palm Trees in the Snow" also with Mario Casas and a thriller . ¨El Guardian Invisible¨. And made several TV series as ¨Luna , Misterio De Calenda¨ , ¨Bienvenidos Al Lolita¨ and ¨Los Hombres De Paco¨ .
