In the controversial 1982 cult classic Pals (Colegas), three teenagers living in a Spanish suburb find themselves in a whole world of trouble when one of them, Rosario, gets pregnant and doesn’t have the money for an abortion.
Her brother, Antonio, and her lover, Jose, fail to find legitimate work to raise the cash and turn to hustling and petty crime. They find themselves in a series of misadventures and encounters with grimy criminals in their effort. Luckily they’ve got each other!
Pals is a classic Quinqui (trouble-maker cinema) film from legendary director Eloy de la Iglesia starring real-life siblings Antonio and Rosario Gonzalez as well as his regular leading man Jose Luis Manzano. The film has recently been restored by the cult cinema label Altered Innocence for a brand-new special edition Blu-ray.
