Editorial Reviews

In the Mediterranean coast, waves of "illegal aliens' keep arriving from Africa, pursuing their legitimate right to a better life. In a neighborhood by the port of Valencia, two characters fated to come together each face their own struggles. Berta, a pretty nurse of fragile looks but strong personality, haunts pick-up joints in search of the pleasures she has not yet given up. Eduardo, a police inspector who is new to the city, drowns in alcohol the despair brought on by his job and his illness. They meet and fall desperately in love. Berta has devoted the best years of her life to her niece and two nephews, following her sister's death. Berta's love affair is jeopardized, however, by the criminal behavior of the three youngsters. Her niece Lucía is in love with a scoundrel involved in a gang that smuggles immigrants into Europe. Her nephews, Guillermo and Raúl, belong to a violent band of skinheads. One night, a man from Senegal named Omar is brutally beaten. The police investigation headed by Inspector Morís adds yet another obstacle to the complicated relationships among all characters, proving that both life and the sea are full of sharks.

Format: DVD
SALVAJES ("Savages") is one of those films that makes you want it to succeed. The story takes place in Spain and involves a group of 'skinheads' who are out to rid their country of unwanted immigrants and in doing so give reference to ethnic cleansing that always raises a heinous specter. Marisa Paredes, always an excellent actress, tries valiantly to make the best of her role as a 50s-something mother of two sons involved in the beating of an African American man. She becomes romantically involved with the policeman assigned to the investigation and who proves to have bizarre, edgy behaviors himself. The filming is by hand held camera which in the beating and interrogation scenes provides only an abstraction of motion that, gratefully, spares us the gore, but at the same time creates a sense of the film falling apart. The actors are a mixed bag: good performances form Imanol Arias, Manuel Moron and Roger Casamjor but only adequate ones from the fairly large supporting cast. The credits (while completely unreadable due to the superimposed film-within-a-film) are where the message is strongest: several immigrants from Cameroon and other locales speak to the audience about the difficulties of acceptance (let alone brutality) they experience in Spain. Four stars for content, 3 stars for execution. In Spanish with English subtitles.

This a very good story. It's on a simmilar line as "American History X" but developed in spain... I liked it! very interesting and makes you think about and everyday problem: racism.
