COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Los Reyes, c'est un skatepark en plein cœur de Santiago fréquenté par des jeunes du quartier. Mais "les rois" de ce parc, ce sont Chola et Fútbol, deux chiens. Errances, jeux, complicités, le film montre avec tendresse et humour le quotidien des deux chiens, pendant que, hors champ, l'univers des adolescents se dessine en creux. En apparence les conversations tournent autour du skate, de l’alcool, de la drogue ; mais rapidement, les discussions révèlent des préoccupations plus profondes sur leur avenir ou leurs relations avec leur famille.

Los Reyes is the oldest skatepark in the Chilean capital of Santiago. But in its literal sense, “the kings” in the title of this film can equally refer to Chola and Football, the two stray dogs that have made their home in this open space full of hurtling skateboards and rowdy teenagers. The energetic female Chola loves to play with the balls she finds lying around. She positions them at the edge of the bowls where the skaters show off their tricks, and tries to catch them just before they fall down. The older dog, Football, looks on impatiently and barks at Chola until she finally drops the ball.
The teenagers around them come from very different, sometimes troubled backgrounds. They each have their own story, which they recount to us in voice-over. But in this almost fairy-tale-like film, the phenomenal, dreamlike camerawork centers almost entirely on the subtle interaction between the two dogs, as they play with a ball, a stick, a stone and each other.
