Los golfos / Les voyous / The Delinquents (1960) DVD9
Los Golfos concerns a group of hooligans who live in a slum suburb of Madrid. Hoping to raise themselves into society, they decide to collect enough money to enable one of their members to become a bull fighter.
The film's method is as rough and ready as its protagonists — but these youngsters, who rob and cheat, are delinquent only in so far that poverty of mind and body forces them to attain their ambitions the simple way. They want food ... they steal it. They want women ... they take them. And when one of them wants to become a torero, the gang robs and steals to launch him into the arena.
Finished in 1959 and nominated for the 1960 Palme d’Or at Cannes, Los Golfos was not released until 1962 due to a bitter battle with the Spanish censors.
