Omschrijving El Bola [DVD](import zonder NL ondertiteling) - :
A startling directorial debut from Achero Mañas, EL BOLA is a vivid and powerful drama of young urban lives. El Bola Pellet is a 12-year-old with a dark, disturbing secret and no friends, until new classmate Alfredo moves into the neighbourhood and reveals a wondrous new world that fleetingly offers joy and hope. Truly accomplished on all levels, EL BOLA s real strength lies in the incredible performances from the young central duo of Juan José Ballesta (El Bola) and Pablo Galán (Alfredo). The winner of four Goya Awards (Spanish Oscars), including Best Film, Best Emerging Director, Best Emerging Actor (Ballesta) and Best Original Screenplay, Mañas also won the Fassbinder/European Discovery Award at the 2001 European Film Awards.
