What happens if you have affection to your mate or even you love it and you also fall in love with other person and you don't want to hurt your good old friend in life because you know is weak? What happens if you are conscious about that who has been together with you for years needs you and if you let him down you'll make a big damage and even put his or her life in risk? May be some other movies have been concerned about this deal occasionally, but i don't remember anyone with the strength and deepness of this beautiful and graceful film with big drama but also very tender moments. Because the film is actually very tender and the script has its funny moments too.
Olea's direction is absolutely solid and the story is very well built, may be because one of the writers is the detective novelist Alicia Giménez Bartlett. But the four main members of the cast are also superb in their roles: In this sense, the chemistry between Verdú and Sanz that they have developed since they were teenagers in films like "El año de las luces" works, and the acting of Barranco and Grandinetti is also very remarkable.
But as many other times Sanz is the king of the screen here, and of course of his ironical dialogs, so plenty of the sense of humor of a loser that is difficult to avoid a big sympathy for him. The scene in which Barranco and him have a night of revelry is one of the big highlights of the film though all of it is a big piece of real and tender life.
The only thing that doesn't convince me is the ending, thinking it could be different. But i have watched it just one time. May be i change my opinion the next!!
