Storyline

Daniel is approaching forty. Laura is fifteen... almost sixteen. From what they say about him he must be a poet or a comic-strip illustrator, or both. He has just overcome a long addiction and, once back home, is trying to recongnize his life based on a strategy which consists basically in DOING EXACTLY WHAT A "NORMAL" PERSON DOES. Everything that happens to Daniel is, more or less, foreseeable because that's what it's all about: he should look after his personal grooming, take care of the small things, immerse himself in the real world... and so on until he has completed the ten small achievements in his manual, a set of COMMANDMENTS devised by an insipid public health system psychiatrist. And, in the midst of all this, an unexpected happening: Laura arrives in the city searching for her brother Andres, Daniel's neighbor. But the brother is not home and she decides to wait for him, while organizing around Daniel what could be his "perfect world". Written by Cristina Sutherland

weird one
4 June 2007 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Daniel is an ex-drug-addict that tries to rebuilt his life. To do it, he has written a Decalogue of actions to do. All seems to be fine, but the apparition of a fifteen-year-old girl in front of his door (she is the little sister of his ex-neighbor) will change his life a little, as he is forced to take care of her. At first sight is quite comical, but watching to it slowly, you'll be able to realize that it describes a hard life and it is more a drama. The acting is just correct, and the building of the characters is good bad nothing more. The story is maybe too much absurd and the chapters that it is divided makes it a little strange to follow, probably is too weird to result good, but it is not bad, just different.
