The Madrid a tourist might not catch

A group of friends embark on a short and doomed life of crime in Madrid in the 1970's. Filmed in color in and around Madrid, with some great locations and a nice flamenco/rock soundtrack, the characters choose to live dangerously rather than work in deadend jobs. The film seems to be saying something about society and opportunity, but doesn't get lost in any sermons. It sticks with the characters up to the inevitable end, and goes into some out of the way locations, with one scene having them on horseback and crossing a busy highway. Saura has made a real portrait out of each of the characters while showing a dusty and not too pleasant side of Madrid somewhere out in its suburbs.

Gorgeous and Sensuous.

This movie makes beautiful use of Flamenco music, and does it better than any I've seen. Carlos Saura obviously cares deeply about the medium, as he also made a movie called Flamenco (although it's just a concert piece).

The story is very basic; it deals with the adventures of young street-criminals in Madrid who graduate from car-theft to bank-robbery. What's interesting is the way Saura makes us care about these "hijos de nadie", who are kind and decent people 50% of the time, and feel they have no future in regular society. But the movie never sentimentalizes them - they do exactly what you'd expect such people to do.

Dialogue is kept to a minimum; a lot of the communication is via the graceful gestures the Spanish are so good at. This allows extra time for the soundtrack, and it really gets you into the spirit of the film, which is really more like dance than acting.

Flamenco originated among the dispossessed, among beggars and gypsies condemned to live in waste places and junkyards on the edge of town, and the scenes of the barren housing-projects on the fringes of Madrid really bring this feeling to life.

Deprisa, Deprisa conveys a better understanding of the spirit of Flamenco than more elegant movies dedicated to the subject. (And Carlos Saura is a genius).

Deprisa, Deprisa: Too Fast to Look Behind

Much like the renegade lovers of Terrence Malick's classic independent debut "Badlands," the renegade lovers of Carlos Saura's "Deprisa, Deprisa" are hollowed-out creatures with jittery instincts and a desperate need to escape, more than anything, boredom and the inevitably painful disillusionment of young adulthood. However, Malick imbues his film with a nostalgia of lost youth that gives way, almost hypnotically (Sissy Spacek's Holly seems to be in a trance the entire film), to the empty-headed, unaffected, face-life-head-on bravado of the dissatisfied and delusional Kit. Unlike Kit and Holly, Pablo and Angela of Saura's film aren't hypnotized or going through the motions. Their crime spree is not an existential courtship either. Theirs is a materialistic crusade against the press of time and the demands of society. They will make their living on their own terms, and they're not in the least bit afraid to don ski-masks and cheap fake mustaches, to carry pistols and sawn-off shotguns, and they're not afraid to make a run for it. For them, it's a carnival ride, whereas with Kit and Holly, it was a spiritual journey through the hostility of the deserted badlands. Saura is not so romantic. He sees his youths as ticking time bombs with their heads far above the clouds. The enthusiasm with which they carry out their makeshift robberies is indicative of a childish imitation of such romantic outlaws as Bonnie and Clyde. They are in over their heads, playing catch up with their fantasies. What Pablo and Angela fail to realize is that their fantasies are much to fast to catch. Hence the title. Saura portrays this with such distinction, with such control and attention to character that we cannot help but be caught up with Pablo and Angela despite our unease in watching their recklessness. This is the mark of a truly powerful filmmaker, one who can bring us along the journey and make us feel the feelings of the characters in the process. When Angela walks off into the purple evening sky during the last shot of the film, we know that she knows her life has lost its luster in the furious pursuit of some wild dream. We know that the future only holds a lack of the past for her and that any speed she maintained with her lover is coming to a screeching, unforgiving halt.
