Julián receives an unexpected visit from his friend Tomás, who lives in Canada. The two men, accompanied by Julián's faithful dog, Truman, will share emotional and surprising moments prompted by Julián's complicated situation.
"En la ciudad" portrays the daily lives, secrets and lies of a bunch of thirty-somethings living in Barcelona. Although they share a lot of time together, one can see the isolation affect the characters, who talk a lot but eventually fail to communicate what's really inside them.
The film relies in its magnificent script, but, above all, in the great performances by its actors. Some of them are very good (Eduard Fernández, Mónica López, Alex Brendemühl and some others), but the real standout here is María Pujalte, as a sensitive woman addicted to romance.
For its sincere portrait of urban life and for the great job of screenwriters and performers, overall rating: 9.
