Director Antonio Banderas's reflective sophomore drama follows nascent poet Miguelito (Alberto Amarilla) and his best friends, Paco (Félix Gómez) and Babirusa (Raúl Arévalo), as they confront their pasts and ponder their futures while coming of age in 1970s-era southern Spain. Based on the novel by author Antonio Soler, the story centers largely on Miguelito's relationship with the beautiful Luli (María Ruiz) and his struggle to move beyond his youthful indiscretions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The movie is like a cinematic poem. It is beautiful with appropriate surrealistic effects to maintain the mood of the dialogue. The plot is well implemented. If you like movies that speak to your artistic side and to your contemplative side then this movie is for you. I want to buy it. There is alot said about living life.
This is a touching coming of age story which Antonio Banderas gave a sensitive reading to. It's a shame that the American public did not appreciate or possibly even view this film which shows a deep sensitivity and problems youth faces in trying to come to grips. I liked it very much and it shows an interesting slice of life. Also, good casting with Victoria Abril-too bad Antonio did not appear in the film, as well.
