Juan Diego Botto,
The level of Spanish cinema is usually quite low, but there's sometimes time for this pleasant surprises, hidden good movies inside all the mess. David is a young model guy. Good person, good student, lovely. He lives with his mother Irene and his grand-father, Mateo. He loves Clara, a young woman that works in a supermarket. Although she loves him, his poor condition will cause problems with Irene, who thinks that his son deserves something better. Mateo, tortured by his remembers of civil war, is probably the person that understands better David, who is quite unknown, despite his gentleness. The unexpected dead of David will cause the world of everyone to crack and they will be forced to live in a new reality, without David. Everyone is devastated, and adaptation is difficult, but this is the power of the movie, it becomes moving and it keeps the interest at every time. Emma Vilarasau and Fernan-Gómez play a very good part, and surprisingly, Marta Etura does it too! (well just correct, but it is a surprise anyway) The result is a very good movie, with a great story and a very good acting of well build characters, complexes, but human. Probably the thing that I don't know what makes there are the critic to the Civil War and Franco's dictatorship that are in some moments of the film, I think it is probably to understand more Mateo, but I think they are useless in the film. To sum up, a good surprise to watch to near of Kleenex, cause it is quite sad!
