This film is good, its music is great
29 September 2001 | by aramis_mxvhSee all my reviews

I saw this film when I was 17 y.o. and first I didn't like it at very much, because it seemed to me that it was very obscure (and yet crude).

Nevertheless I can tell now that it shows the chaos that young people of that time was passing through and I think it reflects very well the way things was at the end of the 60's.

But the music, although I can not remember the song titles, is wonderful, especially the one that is repeatedly played in it, which I never did known the title and performer.
