SOMOS MARI PEPA

Samuel Kishi Leopo

Mexico 95 min Fiction

Synopsis

Their first punk song is obscene and powerful. But now, if the four lads from Mari Pepa are to take part in a battle of the bands, they have a pressing need for a new song. Their second is just like the first – but sadly not as inspired. They’re only half way on the road to fame when reality catches up with them: a dull holiday job, their first girlfriend, problems with parents – everything suddenly seems to conspire against them.
The plot is as open-ended as life itself when you’re sixteen, and the photography is as natural as though the protagonists were used to having a camera around all the time.
