The waves on the beach
30 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

The sea (el mar) is the Atlantic, with its eternal waves, that for 30 years separated two brothers after the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). The older brother returns from Buenos Aires to Madrid to reconnect with his family. Time (el tiempo), memories and the older generation have changed everything, and recovering the past is difficult. Made in 1989 the film is set in 1968 evoking its social unease exploding in the street manifestations of Madrid, repeated in Paris that month of May. The social tensions are set against the background of the family's personal problems. Not to be missed is the performance of the two brothers, and their rather confused mother (suggesting an even older Spain). bpeb
