Shattering film.

Jaume, an older and ill medieval literature professor, has returned to Barcelona to die. He has been in love twice in his life: the first time, in his youth, with a fellow university friend Pere, now married with a daughter, and the second time with a student David, a rebel-without-a-cause type talent. Jaume wants to save David and turn him into some sort of spiritual heir. David has gotten Alba pregnant but has a rather special extra job . Alba doesn't know if she wants to carry the baby and talks it over with her mother Fanny. Fanny is afraid to get old with Pere as just being a wife.

Five characters, in an almost race against the clock, argue, struggle and hurt each other. At the same time they discover that there's a fine line between wishes and making them possible with another person. BELOVED/FRIEND is a dense and dark film, that shows these 5 people in an almost sadistic, hard way. In a shattering final everything is resolved and at the same time nothing is accomplished. Or is it?
