Storyline

When journalist Manuel Cueto is hired to type novelist Joaquín Góñez's last book, his presence provokes an avalanche of feelings that bring Joaquín to the edge of emotions and memories that had lain dormant in the solitude of the last stages of his creative life. Accustomed to years of loneliness, Joaquín finds in the young journalist a bridge to the forgotten years of his youth in the 60's and 70's, during his wild years in Buenos Aires. Argentina had been witness to the mistakes made in the passage to adulthood, the memories of old friends, the meaning of loyalty, the influences of cinema and jazz, the taste of first love and the experiences of the many which followed and the intimate relationship with his parents, particulary with his mother Roma, a strong, intelligent woman, a supporter of his youthful ideals. It is to Roma to whom Joaquín owes his free, bohemian spirit and the aspirations shared with her in the shadow of the memory of his father will awaken in Joaquín the desire ...

I loved this film and am astounded at previous reviewers that found it "slow". Two and a half hours that skimmed by for me and I didn't want it to end. Okay, it is not an action film. It is a reflection on life, relationships, and maturation. The central theme is the influence of an exceptional mother, named Roma, on the life and development of the narrator.

This isn't about Argentine history, life in the 60s and 70s in Buenos Aires, none of that except as incidental to decades-long time line. Although there is the incidental, requisite Argentine reference to the terror of the 70s; it is not that story. It is about growing up and growing old and "finding" one's self. This is not a feel-good movie but real and true, if only we were all blessed with such a mother.

This is an adult script, not meaning "adult themed", and if you need an action movie with guns and car chases...stay away. The script, casting, performances and production values are thoroughly superb.
