A story by Pablo Pérez
23 June 2007 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

"Un Año sin Amor" or its English title "A Year Without Love" is based on the real story of Pablo Pérez. All that we see here is based in his own experience with AIDS, sex, and his own sexuality, friends and family. Directed by Anahi Berneri, "Un Año Sin Amor" is a look of lost love and solitude.

The story is of a man, Pablo, who is writing a novel about his experiences, have AIDS. He felt a terrible solitude, in spite that he lives with his aunt. He has friends, few who loves him really. He looks in gay magazines for friends, relationship and sex. But, then, the only way that he finds to fight against that loneliness and his own sickness is through pain that others can offer to him. The topic that the story offers is very interesting, as polemical, i guess. A human been sometimes prefer win affect through something, even pain, and in this movie we find clear this example with Pablo, and how he decides go to the masochism. He trust that, at least, something give it affection for that way. But we watch that not going to be in this way (For example, Pablo finds, in one of the clubs, a man that is interested with him. Pablo maybe thinks that is affection, but at the end, Pablo receives a hit when finds the awful true).

Althoug that some characters (Like Pablo, his "real" friend, his aunt and his french student) and the movie intention going to be remembered, i think that the film needs some force - specially in a bitter but however a little uncompleted ending-. "Un Año sin Amor" is a film that, in spite that could be much better, i recommend for a viewer who wants a little of reflection and intimacy about topics which are fundamental in our lives: The love, the solitude, and what we do for don't feel that pain, no matter if we decide suffer with other much horrible like that.

*Sorry for the mistakes... well, if there any.
