effervescent and visceral
26 February 2015 | by sugarfreepeppermintSee all my reviews

This film did not bore me one single second. It has a great cast of handsome, young, talented actors. The script is delightfully irreverent and at times refreshingly comic. Visually, it's fast paced, and we move from iridescent scenes in da club, hands in the air dancing to anthems, to sleazily snorting cocaine in the toilet cubicles, or heedlessly taking home dodgy young studs for a one night stand. Yes, it's that type of movie: sex, drugs and club life, Spanish style (they're no prudes, and I like it).

But there's more to it than that. Within this promiscuous hedonist environment, people are trying to find a match for their desires. The storyline where one guy (Mario Casas) is secretly in love with his best (straight) mate (Yon Gonzales) is particularly well done. The film is anything but shallow. People writing this film off, because of its themes, are shallow.

The soundtrack is a joy as well.
