"El Pera" is a 10-year-old kid, he seems normal, but he is one of the most dangerous thieves in Getafe (south of Madrid), expert in driving cars (and stealing them), the film tries to show us a little biography of his life, telling us how were his first years and how ended, in the correctional, where he became professional driver and later, teacher of dangerous driving to the police. It is based in real facts. Well, the film is not quite good. The action scenes are bad filmed, and, most of times, it is clear where there is a computer job (specially on car persecutions), actors are quite forced, anyone feels comfortable in their paper (but for Tejero, that, surprisingly, plays a decent part being "el Pera"'s father). The directing is not better, it is never told to us when there has been a jump in time, nor the boy changes anything to mark the years that have passed (from 8 to 10 years). In addition, some scenes result incoherent, as the relation of the kid with a good-looking junkie (bed scenes included). I don't know if it was real, but the treatment that the director makes is not very good. On the other hand, despite that, the film does not result boring, as the scenes are quick and the story quite interesting. It could have been better with a better directors and better actors.
