Puerto Rico's greatest director, Jacobo Morales, creates a film which mixes neo-realism with surrealism creating this modern foreign masterpiece. You can compare this film with the theme of "About Schmidt" with Jack Nicholson, when his character retires from work and his life suddenly shrinks, well, the same thing happens in this film with Santiago, yet it is up to him to keep living because life is not over after 65. It was too bad this film was Oscar-nominated the same year as "Cinema Paradiso", because if not it would have definitely won Best Foreign Film. With a wonderful cast made up of Puerto Rico's finest like Gladys Rodriguez, Rene Monclova, Johana Rosaly and, of course, Don Tommy Muniz, "Lo que le paso a Santiago" is a film for those who love foreign films, but above all, for those who love life.
