Finally, Spanish women get their revenge on
machismos and brutal gangsters. Fed up with
being kicked around and abused by men, four
women - played by some of Spain's biggest stars,
including Victoria Abril - take up the fight against
the Mexican mafia in Agustín Díaz Yanes' JUST
WAL KING . What they want is money and revenge,
and what you get is not your average CHARLIE'S
ANGELS movie; it is Quentin Tarantino meets
CHARLIE'S ANGELS in the brutal world of New
Mexican Cinema. With a crisscrossing narrative of
double-crossing deceit, Diaz Yanes stretches the
stylistic boundaries of action, comedy and drama.

The film takes us from Spain to Mexico, where
the four women are reunited after a bank robbery
gone wrong. One of the women has married a
crime boss whose business becomes the main
target in the plot-turning orgy of violence and
sex that follows. JUST WALKING is an exciting
thriller, but most of all it is an intriguing web of
frustrated actions by a group of individuals who
never got anything for free in life.
