Passable drama about two brothers have wildly differing temperaments and their twisted relationships
10 December 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This naturalist flick deals with a young aspiring architect called Nacho (Unax Ugalde) meets his eldest brother Carlos (Tristan Ulloa) after several years he left home . Carlos is a swindler and obsessed card gambler , he owes a lot of cash and being pursued by his violent creditors . Nacho is still living with their wealthy parents (Minguillón , Hermann Bonnín) while Carlos living with his fiancée . Later on , Carlos has been leaved by his girlfriend (Elizabeth Cervantes) and Nacho falls in love with her . Then , the events go wrong until a tragic and surprising final.

Solid , realist but downbeat drama with screenplay by same director Antonio Chavarrias based on the novel "Un Enano Español Se Suicida En Las Vegas" written by Vicente Francisco Casavella ; being mostly filmed in Barcelona, Catalonia . It is a peculiar story of love , difficult sibling relationship , betrayal , lies and jealousy with an intrigue behind . A promising idea, destroyed by a flawed script that does not build tension and is more a drama than a love story . The picture relies heavily on the complex relationship between two brothers who meet again several years later . This interesting as well as thrilling story is a passionate retelling and a touching drama , including strong as well as exuberant sex scenes . Nice interpretations from Tristan Ulloa as a decaying card player who has a lot of debts and Unax Ugalde as his ingenious brother who attempts to help him with unexpected consequences . Sad though adequate musical score by Javier Navarrete , a prestigious composer who has composed and conducted impressive scores in international successes such as ¨Byzantium¨, ¨Hemingway & Gellhorn¨ , ¨Cracks¨ , ¨Pan labyrinth¨, ¨Wrath of titans¨, ¨Mirrors , and ¨The Devil's backbone¨ . Atmospheric but dark cinematography by Guillermo Granillo , mostly carried out by camera on shoulder and in documentary style . Being shot on location in Sant Boi de Llobregat, Santa Coloma de Cervelló, Teià ,Barcelona , Catalonia, Spain.

The motion picture was professionally directed by Antonio Chavarrias , though with no originality and results to be slow-moving and some boring . Antonio Chavarrías was born in 1956 in Barcelona, Catalonia, location in which he often shoots his films . He is a good writer and director, known for Volverás (2002), Dictado (2012) , Las Vidas De Celia (2006) , Susanna (1996) . Furthermore , he has produced many TV films and pictures such as Radiaciones , Carne Neón , Elisa K , La Isla Interior , Aro Tolbukhin , El Espejo , La Caja , among others .
