Carreteras Secundarias (Backroads) is a 1997 film written by Ignacio Martinez de Pison. The movie takes place in Spain circa 1974, just after the collapse of General Franciso Franco's military reign. The dictatorship and economic standards have left Lozano (Antonio Resines) and his rebellious son Felipe (Fernando Ramallo) financially destitute. The father and son duo drastically change their lives when they decide to ditch their normal lives and hit the road with what little money they have. Lozano and Felipe adopt a gypsy lifestyle, traveling in Lozano's Citroen, jumping from one town to the next. Along their travels, Lozano and Felipe encounter many hilarious as well as humbling situations, never showing signs of weakness in spite of their impoverished situation. Lozano makes love to Estrella (Miriam Diaz Aroca), a singer whom he mights during his travels. At one point, Lozano and Felipe also compete for Paquita (Maribel Verdu), a villager in one of the towns they stop in. Father and son eventually settle down in a town where Lozano picks up a job selling imported cars, and Felipe meets the love of his life Miranda (Tania Adam). Carreteras Secundarias was nominated for two Goya Awards and was well-received in Spain.moreless
