Corridas de alegría

Corridas de alegría

Gonzalo García Pelayo

Spain, 1982, 87 min., Spanish


The title of the second andalusian road movie by Pelayo is misleading. That is because the sexual connotations of the title (corridas) are less important during the movie than the happiness itself (felicidad) -sex appears generously during the footage though briefly and episodicly, yet enough to obtain a soft rate, plus a commercial career dreamt by its producer, Andrés Vicente Gómez-. Happiness is the heart of the matter and the way that Pelayo twists several genres (liberalization, film noire, melodrama, comedy) to include his vision of the world: a hybrid between libertarian hedonism and rejuvenating utopia. Miguel has escaped from prison, seeking revenge and looking for his girlfriend, Diana. On his way he meets Javier, an extrovert card-sharp who lends his car for the sake of Miguel’s cause.
