Spain drinks the "Euro Zone Kool Aid". Homosexuality and inane consumption glorified as Spain degrades its Catholic heritage. !0 years later they are slaves and Mark Zuckerberg is laughing on his way to the bank.

Well done movie set in Madrid. A bit on the down side, due to the nature of the story. Another good effort by Film Movement.

Very realistic and moving story of the two boys and their very different families. The child abuse laws appear to be different in Spain.

I enjoyed the little surprises throughout the movie and the fact that it opens an ethical issue using a storytelling format.

El Bola [Pellet] tells the story of two boys. One is over indulged and a bit of a wild kid. El Bola is abused, insulted and terrorized by a brutal father. How their lives intertwine 'es muy interesante.' Very well told and brilliantly acted.
