I discovered this movie when I did a project on it with a friend in high school for our Spanish class. We literally had a blast watching, experiencing, deconstructing, interpreting, and presenting on it. And we have watched it several times since, whenever we see each other again. And I have watched it several times with other friends, and on my own. In fact, I'm planning on watching it again sometime in the next couple of weeks. And I don't rewatch movies. I hate rewatching movies. But I love rewatching this one because it is not a movie, not in the American Hollywood sense. It is an spectacular example of taking full advantage of film as an art medium. And it doesn't do it in a pretentious way, everything in the movie is relatable. Just give it a chance, you won't regret it.
Two boys look forward to an afternoon of video games when the power goes out and two unexpected people show up with some surprises. Well-thought-out, detailed, and hilarious.
Amazon-U.S. has several good reviews of this little cinematic charmer, so there is no need here to go into any considerable detail. The film is an exercise in whimsy, its fey charm lying in the depiction of the sweetly unaffected innocence of early puberty, of youth still without responsibility or more advanced sexual awakening, for the three teens, and of the frustrations of "slackerhood" for the hapless young man. Its "R" rating (for "restricted") is rather silly, due only to some mild profanity now and then from boys trying to exhibit how "cool" they are and for the deftly cute portrayal of how marijuana (in birthday brownies that the girl makes after a failed cake) affects the foursome's perceptions, pretty innocent stuff in terms of modern film-making!
One definitely should see it in this edition with English (or other) subtitles, unless the viewer's Spanish is good enough to catch banter, including slang, which the characters deliver often quite offhandedly, otherwise one is likely to miss the sly humour of what makes this low-key movie so endearing. (A particularly suitable DVD edition, for the U. S. of A.'s and for Canada's market that is in Spanish only, i.e. without English subtitles to view along with it, bearing the title and variant subtitle, "Temporada de patos: ¿a ti también te vale pito?", is available as R.T.C. Videomax Gold DVD-6342.) The film, obviously, is a bit of unpretentious fluff, but it is ingeniously clever, thus well worth watching time and again.
