español Juventud, diversión, hormonas, coches, la vida por delante. Una bonita mirada a la juventud estadounidense de los años setenta. Casi toda la película son unos cuantos chicos y chicas conduciendo coches por una pequeña ciudad. Nostálgicamente ingenuo, sofisticado, agradable. Y de valor histórico. ¿En cuántas películas podemos ver al ahora gran director Ron Howard en uno de los papeles principales, o a Harrison Ford como un apuesto orejudo paleto? ()

inglés If I had to guess whether George Lucas debuted with THX 1138 or American Graffiti, I'd probably pick this film because it feels more independent to me, less ambitious, and there's not as many memorable directorial ideas in it (for example, the car crash is completely sloppy). But it's not about how the film looks, but rather what it's about, and as a testimony of youth on the doorstep of the Sixties, it's really great. Almost Forman-like. The atmosphere of a hot summer night, during which there are various partings and meetings, is really good. I don't want to pick the one I liked the most from all these stories, but if I had to, it would be the one with Richard Dreyfuss looking for an enchanting beauty. ()

inglés A time period I don't particularly like and films that tell its stories don't resonate well with me either. However, there was a filmmaker, from whom I least expected it, who presented it to me in an absolutely unique way, and I wanted to immerse myself in that vision for the entire 110 minutes to witness the extraordinary events that were unfolding. George Lucas uniquely captured a generational testimony, narrated with the lightness of a young enthusiast, skillfully intertwining various characters - from the nerdy geek to partners in crisis, to all-around cool dudes - without flowers and marijuana smoke. Of course, occasionally, one needs to overlook the credibility of certain dialogues and situations, just as one may overlook the fact that the night during which the story unfolds sometimes appears to be the early dawn in one shot and a few minutes after midnight in the next. One might then suspect that it's not just an unexpected surge in moonlight. Of course, sometimes it's easy to overlook these shortcomings, and when even I - an absolute musical illiterate - found myself humming half of the songs during the film, there must be something to it, both in the film itself and in the representation of the 1970s as a whole.

inglés To fully enjoy Lucas's film, I would have to be a few years younger, or a few years older. It is a film about American teenagers for American teenagers. There is no sensitive exploration into their lives. Fast cars, aimless wandering, first love experiences, and boys' rivalry - in short, the usual offer for this age category. This piece from overseas really doesn't have a lot of depth. If I give it 3 stars, it's only because of the enjoyable soundtrack, which features quite famous tracks, some of which can be considered part of the golden age of pop music. Overall impression: 60%.

inglés The best film by George Lucas. It's a great shame that he forever devoted himself to a galaxy far away and a certain adventurer with a hat, because here he was able to perfectly create a small-town atmosphere in the intimate genre and tell a story with all aspects of a socially-existential drama, while also being a sufficiently light-hearted teenage comedy. The key is that until the very end, it's not clear which level the script will lean towards. Whether it will let the heroes mature definitively over the course of a single night or give them a painful lesson. And perhaps, it can do both completely effortlessly. ()
