dir. Nicolas López Fernández 2004 ,Spain, Chile ,100 min. Nerdy comic book aficionado Roberto battles low self-esteem, loser friends and vicious high school bullies in Santiago as he vies for the heart of Cristina, the hot new girl from Madrid. Hilariously dark, sometimes violent and always unpredictable, the film features great animated comic book sequences, a crazy superhero and more teen angst than even young Superman could handle. ""Napoleon Dynamite"" meets ""Fast Times at Ridgemont High"" with a little bit of "Star Wars" thrown in for good measure. Jocks and babes may rule the school, but here the fat kid laughs last. First class electronic animation and an offbeat humor combine in this story of teen love. Nicolas Lopez was awarded the 2004 Special Jury Award for First Film, Viña del Mar Film Festival, Chile.
