Storyline

As an anonymous man, Fermin leaves his underground hideout in the subway. The dictatorship in the country is followed by democracy, but the bright light of it blinds Fermin: he is displaced. At the police station, his anonymity is complete and he doesn't remember his own name. He is fitted with a past of 13 years of illegal political opposition from the police archives. When he keeps silent about the crimes of the dictator regime, he will be a free man. The woman he promised to marry, doesn't recognize him anymore, and thinks he is dead. Written by Anonymous

Tragic Love
22 February 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It's one of the best films I have ever seen. The story, the acting, the blue colors in the film... it was gripping. The end was one of the most heartbreaking scene's I have ever seen. I cried a river. Very beautiful and emotional... The story is about Fermin, a man that worked as a bus driver and was a member of a workers-union in Argentina. Supposedly he's been arrested for that fact during the Military Junta and was a Missing Person for several years. And then, one day he appears naked on the streets of Buenos Aires again. Fermin suffers from amnesia. He doesn't know what has happen to him for all those missing years. But he remembers his life before his disappearance. Fermin decides to go to see the woman he was supposed to marry, before he got arrested, but she does not recognize him. The story is not about his "missing years " but about what happens when people re-appear when everybody thinks they're dead.
