FIRST FEATURE – OUT OF COMPETITION

In the 1970s, in a country still living under a grey dictatorial regime dominated by censorship, Maria, a young dancer, struggles to bring colour to the world and explore her freedom. As she pursues her dream of becoming a TV star, the journey is told through the greatest hits of the incomparable Raffaella Carrà.

Maria escaping from his groom in a church in Rome and flying to Madrid is just one of the first spins of this musical with a hit-and-miss comedy soul. Soon after she will get enrolled onto the dancers crew of the popular TV programme, which brings us to an explosive musical, a bomb of colour and joy, with the rhythm of an era, mixing some iconic moves and songs with social critical traces.

Debutant Nacho Álvarez manages to include different reflections on 70’s society in Spain which was still wanting to get rid of a long dictatorship, while was awakening to the ideas coming from abroad. If you still don’t know who Raffaella Carrà is, come to the South where love is how it is meant to be, and embrace good mood and optimism of the "My Heart Goes Boom" characters. Despite some debutant's ‘little sins’, you will leave the cinema with a smile, because "My Heart Goes Boom" is the karaoke party we need now and here.
