The stars of this Venezuelan film are a mother and her son, both strong and weak at the same time. Marta has recently lost her job at a security firm, while curly-haired Junior battles to straighten his wild hair for a school photo. His mother’s greatest worry is that he will end up like his father, a dead gangster. At least she has that in common with her mother-in-law. But Junior has other plans. BAD HAIR was the winner of the Golden Shell at the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
