There are a lot of things about this movie that don't make sense. This movie has so many clichés, while at the same time it tries to be different. I would give props for this, but the result is just so bad. First of all: the clichés. They can be very hard to ignore in this movie. The bully has to have bad family relations because, as we all know, there is not a single bully in the world that also lives a satisfying life. There are these annoying scenes where characters want to say something, but then are cut off, as if the characters just couldn't wait or say it later. The parents of course have to assume that their own son is actually the problem. The focus on the phone conversations are also kind of awkward, and does not truly catch the viewpoint of the youth.
The movie seems too short. Because of this, a lot of the events don't make any sense: We don't get to see Gaby's transformation from a victim to a victor fully so it seems very random, why did Carla fall in love with him and why did she break up, and wtf was the deal with Guille? He gives a bit of advice, looks at a girl through his camera, and is then revealed to be a mafia boss. The viewpoint from the teacher is also almost completely forgotten. All of these things could have made sense and could have given a fulfilling story, but they are only confusing, because they aren't panned out. Also, the bullies are really ugly: One of them is very red haired and picks on Gaby for being red haired, the other is an emo, the third is so ugly, skinny and annoying. The only normal looking and behaving is the leader.We're supposed to believe that these are the somewhat popular kids that no one else picks on?
The movie has a sinister ending which is a good thing. That and the somewhat decent acting and directing saves this movie from being the worst of all time.

Gaby, a red-haired 14-year-old in Barcelona, suffers constant thefts and beatings from Guille and his pitiless gang of four. As the relevant parents tip-toe around the periphery and engage in their own useless life-games of power-plays themselves, the owner of Gaby's favorite pizzeria -- a secret mafioso boss -- may have a hint that could change things radically. —Anonymous
