Although I've never been to Spain, I loved the varied scenic views in this film which are fantastic. I agree it does seem somewhat dis-jointed at first but it eventually all comes together. The two boys are good actors, intelligent and quite charming, especially Pedro Barrejon as they both appear to be around ten years old. But its that wanderlust displayed by Pedro that doesn't care to hang around his divorced parents, but take his chances among total strangers which takes me back to my own boyhood and the freedom I had to roam the woods and streams connects to these boys and the magic of boyhood to relive all over again which is missing from American cinema. I highly recommend this film.
