The former racing driver Mikel who has lost the license for participation in races, quite successfully joined life of inhabitants – together with the bride it contains a jeweler shop, the modest business, allowing to stay afloat. Shortly before wedding it is crossed with Ari’s beauty and her friend – street racer Navas. Seemingly interesting company – Navas inflames Miguel’s old gonshchitsky instincts, and Ari awakens passion, but danger to future newly-married couple is that the couple of new acquaintances appeared not from scratch – Navas and Ari plan to plunder the new friend and his shop.
For the first time the film was presented to public and to critics within an annual national Spanish film festival in Malaga, however, by prizes was not noted
Without having comparable budgets with Hollywood, other world who as can, tries to "stake out" small участочек, to hook on the viewer, to draw to itself a shred of additional attention. Spain being in a deep economic crisis, continues to keep in public the good fellow – that will throw excentric Almodovar in world hire, will ominously creak horrors, and that will issue to the surface the thriller with all set which was applied to it of passions.
For shootings of night pursuits and illegal competitions the film crew had to block the whole quarters of the Spanish capital. Except Madrid the part of shootings passed in the Portuguese Lisbon
When viewing "Ignition" you catch yourself on thought that such cinema quite could remove at us, all composed stories perfectly are projected on the Russian reality – the handsome with passion to high speeds, fatal long-legged models, shootouts, cynicism and treachery of heroes. What would turn out in domestic option, I do not undertake to foresee ("Street racers"?), but at Spaniards the sum from addition of these simple components turned out not so negative. The film is simple-minded, from it will not hide, action is unduly fussy, heroes manage nonsenses rather, than operate logically and after careful consideration (at desire it can be written off on the Mediterranean passion), but all is made with any pleasant diligence. You will sometimes note both work of the operator, and a choice of locations, both accurately put romantic and erotic scenes.
Another matter – an action and the thriller component. After all both authors, and film distributors position a picture as a such European clone of "Forcing". But to count on scope of recent jumps on tanks and planes a la Vin Diesel and To it is not necessary. "Ignition" is the in this regard extremely economical. Expensive cars do not afford bigger, than to be dispersed till the speed exceeding city restrictions, cartridges remain in holders, and robberies are limited to a "pensionersky" vypytyvaniye of a code from the safe. It not Rio de Janeiro!
