How to start again when all the hopes are over? How to keep loving the same woman during all your life? How to change without loosing your ideals? How to get old and feel as the first day of your youth?
Basic questions, with basic answers that not everybody is willing to hear. Common places where most of us try not to go.
This film is poetry into a movie. One of the best scripts contents of the Latin American cinema. Aristarain shows one more time to be one of the best ever Argentinean directors.
Take your time to enjoy it.
