Inspectors Velarde and Alfaro must find what appears to be a serial killer, This hunt against the clock will make them realize something they'd never thought about: neither one of them is that different from the killer.
Antonio de la Torre,
The story of a man who fooled an entire country. A tale of cheats and impostors, taking its inspiration from true facts and from one of the most intriguing characters of recent decades: the spy Francisco Paesa.
Miquel García Borda
This film has been accused by critics of being slow, tedious and literary in excess.
Yes, it has a smooth rhythm compared with a lot of its contemporaries and the majority of the dialogues lack of spontaneity due to its extreme accuracy. But the story is so warm and near that you can't help feeling touched by it.
"Historia de un beso" deals with memories that hurt as well as they fill us with melancholy when they come back to us. It's a beautiful and sad story about love that cannot be fulfilled but it's always well remembered.
Yes, I agree with the fact that its literacy it's too much calculated, but I've seen people crying with emotion while they were watching the movie, and I found myself touched at the end, too. If you liked Garci's previous movie ("You're the one, una historia de entonces" is the first of a trilogy) you won't be disappointed.
