Roger Salvans Fotogramas A mature work that shows that in order to win we have to learn how to lose. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Nov 12, 2019 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media Subtitled coming-of-age tale has strong language. Rated: 4/5 Oct 24, 2019 Full Review John Serba Decider Seventeen is a modest gem, an appealing balance of poignant drama and light comedy.

Audience Member Coming-of-age story about two brothers taking up the road to find a lost dog? Sign me up. Simple story but totally relatable and calming to watch. The sceneries are beautiful and the chemistry between the two brothers is magnetic. The ending explains the subtle meaning behind Taraparo's missing leg. Apparently, the main character, Hector, trained three dogs (not just two). The first one has four legs. The second one has three legs. The third one is two-legged. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I highly recommend this movie. It's a roller coaster of feelings. One minute you are laughing,,the other crying. I really liked the storyline. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review harsh c Enjoyable film with genuine characters Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Me encanto para mi es un verdadero 10 /10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lovely film. Recorded in Cantabria (Spain) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review filippo v Il film coinvolge e stupisce con decisione grazie ad una sceneggiatura fantastica, ricca di dialoghi interessanti che non annoiano mai. Viene mantenuto un umorismo di base per tutta la durata del film, che manifesta la sua presenza soprattutto nelle scene chiave per la narrazione. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
