Synopsis

Piola is a story about three young Chileans. Martin and Charly spend their time making rap music. One night they find a weapon, while a girl loses her dog. Although seemingly unrelated, these stories are intimately linked, telling the difficult passage from adolescence to adulthood.

“A rap-fueled coming of age tale — Through a series of subplots, the film also touches on issues of race, class, immigration and the near-unbreakable bonds between close friends.” (Jamie Lang, Variety)

Piola on tarina kolmesta nuoresta chileläisestä. Martin ja Charly viettävät aikaansa tehden rap-musiikkia. Eräänä yönä he löytävät aseen, kun samanaikaisesti eräs tyttö menettää koiransa. Vaikka nämä kaksi tarinaa vaikuttavat täysin irrallisilta toisistaan, ne kuitenkin liittyvät läheisesti yhteen kertoen vaikeasta siirtymisestä murrosiästä aikuisuuteen.

”Rapilla maustettu kasvutarina — monien juonenkäänteiden kautta, elokuva koskettaa myös rotu-, luokka- ja siirtolaisuuskysymyksiä sekä lähes rikkomattoman läheisiä ystävyyssuhteita.” (Jamie Lang, Variety)

“Una historia de crecimiento impulsada por el rap: A través de una serie de subtramas, la película también aborda cuestiones de raza, clase, inmigración y los lazos casi inquebrantables entre amigos cercanos.” (Jamie Lang, Variety)

Expert review

“Rap music has an exceptional capacity to transform and adapt itself to any culture and become a localized entity. Even if I might not be familiar with the local scene in Santiago de Chile, I instantly recognize this culture in Piola as my own.”
