Storyline

Santiago wakes up like any other morning. He goes down to the kitchen and his whole family is waiting for him: it's his birthday. They all sing "Happy Birthday to You" and give him presents. But when he opens the present of his youngest son, he gets angry and says he doesn't like it. The boy starts crying and saying that he loves him, but Santiago answers that he doesn't believe him and he tells the boy that he is fired and that he wants another son, who is thinner, who doesn't need glasses and who resembles him more.

7 November 1999 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

Santiago, stars Juan Luis Galiardo, is a lonely man in this world. He decides to hire a complete crew of actors on his birthday in order to make them act as his family. Under this unbeliavable and original idea, director Fernando León makes us go inside the feelings of every character, and all the things that happen on this particular birthday... What a great opera prima from León...!!
