Editorial Reviews

Review

"...fairly deft pairing of eye candy and substance." --Philadelphia City Paper

Product Description

Love and terrorism collide in this sexy Molotov cocktail of raging adolescent hormones and righteous indignation. When three virile teenage boys escape from a detention center, their charismatic leader Xabi has more on his mind than good times and dodging cops. While his clueless friends blissfully hook up with girls, Xabi is making explosives and tracking down his lover Iñaki, the head of a Basque terrorist cell with whom he had a brief affair. Desperate to prove himself to the silver-haired extremist, Xabi plants bombs and robs unsuspecting johns. But when one of his tricks turns out to be a cop, his plans begin to crumble.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adolescent Naivete May 15, 2009
Format:DVD
Interestingly, there are three story lines in this movie. Each character representing a potential fleeting phase of growing up.
one is a free spirit, one is a don juan, one is confused soul looking to impress his first love. Two of the characters are straight one is gay; all test boundries, the law, and what they feel is passion.
Honestly many of the scenarios are a stretch of the imagination....the transition/link from one plot to the other is poorly demonstrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars More like a coming of age story February 14, 2013
Format:DVD
I went into this move with few expectations. I picked up the DVD, on a whim, at the library so as to practice my Spanish language skills. When the movie trailers began to play, I had a moment of thinking, "What is this movie about again?" To my surprise, this movie falls into the genre of gay cinema. I know next to nothing about gay cinema but quickly found myself intrigued by the trailers, particularly those for Bangkok Love Story and Schoolboy Crush. I thanked the Universe for the unexpected awareness, laughed at my ignorance, and hit play.

Set in Spain, the movie opens on a scene with young men playing football (soccer) at a detention center for juveniles. One of the ball players, Joel, looks up at a window to find another young man, Xabi, returning his gaze. Conspiratorially, they nod at each other as another young man, Driss, observes. Together, they escape their prison and set off to Madrid. In Madrid, Joel pursues his interest in women and sex while Driss, drawn to Xabi's leadership, decides to loyally accompany Xabi in whatever he may need. This ends up including terrorism in the name of Basque freedom.

The story revolves around and splinters off of Xabi's journey. His political interests are intrinsically linked with his infatuation for Iñaki, an estranged ex-lover and ETA terrorist. But ulitimately, this story is not about homosexuality or Spanish politics. It's a coming of age story, revealing the simplicity of young emotions: when at a loss, we gravitate towards kindness. (That's true for some adults, I guess, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining if you like watching young guys March 19, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The sex is minimal and most of it is straight but if you like watching young guys you may like this. They are all troublemakers.
Worth a watch in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit slow for an action flick April 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Competent acting/directing and movie making, however the film was a bit slow and definitely could have used a push and the ending was a bit melodramatic. I did Love Israel Rodriguez, he was very believable and was nice to look at.

Format:DVD
Growing up on the streets (and, along the way, at a reform school for teenage males) of large urban centres in Spain, without parents' attentions, can lead young guys into a lot of trouble. That is just what happens to Xabi and his two friends in "Clandestinos" (the 2007 Spanish film of this title, not the 1987 Cuban film so titled) after they escape from their reform school and end up on the wrong side of the law. Xabi (acted by Israel Rodríguez) is full of delusional ardour about just what being a militant activist, even amateur terrorist, means for himself and for other Basques. He is the only Basque of the three male teens and the lad of the youthful trio whose adventures the movie follows most closely. In his sweetly doglike devotion to Xabi, an Arab lad somewhat younger than Xabi, Driss (played by Mehroz Arif), falls in with Xabi's romanticised ideas and self-assumed role as a freelance terrorist for the Basque cause. The third guy, Joel (acted by Hugo Catalán), is from México, and is basically apolitical, more interested in girls (a taste for which his good looks assure easy success) than in any political struggle. Xabi and Driss undergo a roller-coaster ride in roughly "coming of age" through the activist and amourous adventures that befall them.

Driss, cavorting along with Joel, also finds a girlfriend, one who is chubby, rather bossy, and suspicious, but Driss remains true to his devotion to Xabi, who is gay, but Xabi is unassertive of that with Driss, treating the Arab lad as a kid brother and apprentice-associate in the Basque nationalist cause; needless to say, Xabi is only one slight, awkward step at a time ahead of Driss in developing their "radical-chic" skills!
