What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film El Niño

    Narcotics thriller between Gibraltar, Spain and Morocco. Jesus -El Niño- Castro is a very bad actor but Tosar, Fernandez and Lopez save the show. The movie is instructive in the sense it gives us the opportunity to visit Gibraltar, a city rarely shown on screen. There are also two motorboats vs helicopter duels. Thats' it. I simply can't understand how this film earned 16 (!) nominations for the Goya awards.
