That is what existentialism was for Sartre
15 August 2005 | by (Gijón, Asturies, Spain) – See all my reviews

Lorenzo is an student in the Spain of the 50's, that means during the dictatorship after the Civil War. He has been in England on holidays and he has knew another way of life, other people, another horizon and a girl, Berta: daughter of an exiled. When he comes back to Spain he got involved again in the routine and the traditional atmosphere of his family, his friends and his girlfriend. The boredom of his little town is killing him. The movie is divided in nine parts, each one corresponding to a letter sent to Berta. Most of it is based on the off-voice and it really captivates you with its weariness, its existentialism and its catharsis with the main character, played by the great Emilio Gutiérrez Caba.

Lorenzo eventually has thought: something is not ended yet, but everything is already beginning to change.
