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

Man on the Moon and Woman on the Earth
15 February 2005 | by (Seville, Spain) – See all my reviews

Daniel is a 40-year-old man. He's drugged and has got a bad life. But one day, he decides to start again and become a new man with a new ORDINARY life.

The ORDINARY LIFE is the lead topic of this movie. How can you be ORDINARY? Is dangerous to be ORDINARY? It's good to be ORDINARY? Daniel doesn't think so. He just plays his role in the real life, acting like somebody like me, like us.

One day, He finds out a little girl, played perfectly by the young Teresa Hurtado. She's the person who will take Daniel to the Earth. Just enjoy the movie. A good ACID comedy about to be ORDINARY and have got an ORDINARY life.

I think this movie could have been called ORDINARY PEOPLE.
