Good movie about richness and poverty, both in the material and in the humanistic sense.
This is a story about poverty and richness. Poverty in the material and in the human values sense of the word. This is a story that could happen in any part of the world. This version is situated in and adapted to the Spanish context, where a the story unfolds in Sevilla, around one of the roughest neghbourhoods there.
We have good ingredients of good and bad, and of the reasons we do things and of who we are. Nothing in the adult world is white or black.
The film is shot in part on site in a real slum and delinquent neighbourhood in Sevilla. That alone is a feat. Acting is good and most of the characters convincing. The story is not straightforward and keeps one awake and interested at all times.
I recommend viewing.
