La Primera Noche de mi Vida (The First Night of My Life) DVD - 1998 film directed by Luis Miguel Albaladejo. An extravagant road movie set on New Year's Eve, 1999 in a Madrid suburb where the highways seem to lead nowhere. It begins with a simple invitation to dinner for Manuel and his very pregnant wife, Paloma. Soon the night becomes a succession of misunderstandings, hitchhiking, lost cars, mistaken identities, small accidents, and petty disputes. Beggars, thieves, tourists, taxi drivers and police officers all come together at the crucial moment when the clock strikes twelve, and no one celebrates New Year's Eve as planned. Stars José Antonio Albadalejo, Geli Albadalejo and María José Alfonso. 82 minutes, unrated.
