Barracón 2

Synopsis

Jordi, a rebellious and captivating young man, is going through problems with his studies and family that will make him decide to join the army to get his life back on track. Adrià, an introverted boy, who has belonged to the group of friends since adolescence and who also has an inner crossroads due to family, personal, drug and other problems, will decide to enlist with him to deal with his inner demons.

This will make them learn the true meaning of friendship, loyalty and discipline, as well as fraternity towards other soldiers. Jordi, who will not accept the feelings that his friend is awakening in him as a result of an experience, will try to stay away, oblivious to comments and events that affect Adrià and that will lead them to separate little by little.

Review

3/5
Sexuality, friendship and mental health is powerfully explored in this Spanish language book trailer.
Directed by José Mut, ‘Barracón 2’ is a short LGBTQ+ themed romance video that acts as book trailer for Laura Moreno Ruiz’s novel. With an ensemble cast of young actors, the video teases the liberations and complications of maturity and coming-of-age. Sexuality, friendship and mental health serve as the narrative themes – exploring two male friends and their joint enlistment to the military. The trailer, and it’s associated novel, is produced in the Spanish language. With dramatic cinematography, tense melodrama and alluring performances, the trailer for ‘Barracón 2’ is certain to entice the audience to the book itself.

The entire narrative to ‘Barracón 2’ is understandably withheld from the video, but viewers will be rewarded with a overview of what to expect. The establishing tone is light and jovial – swiftly descending into the pits of despair as the two star-crossed gay lovers struggle with their sexuality, and their emotions, in an obviously virile environment.

José Mut deserves high praise and acclaim for crafting such a riveting teaser – which utilises character voice-over to illustrate the plot. The performances by the young Spanish actors also aid the allure of the narrative. Laura Moreno Ruiz’s novel is certainly intriguing – with the potential for a short/feature film adaption. Discover the book ‘Barracón 2’ online for further reading.
