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 ...

good but slow
15 February 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

A journalist arrives to a writer's home to help him to make an autobiography, there, as he tells his life, we can remember all his good and bad moments that caused a scar in his existence. A movie with a typical Argentinian style: great actors with a very well structured screenplay and a touching and hard story. unfortunately, as usual in Argentinian films, it is too much slow, and than can make it boring sometimes, in the same way, its enormous duration (2 hours and a half) makes it more difficult to enjoy indeed. It has very very good acting. However, its duration and its lack of rhythm mess a little the result; with 30 minutes less of film it would have been better.
