Sad as well as romantic comedy dealing with friendship and a wonderful love story
Simple as well as sensitive film about youthful , including comedy , drama , emotion , along with colorful cinematography and marvelous songs . Heartfelt tale dealing with three twenty and some mates , regarding themes of friendship , love and death , but done through the eyes of youth . The picture concerns about an agreeable comradeship , taking place issues about love , forgiveness and regret . Three young men called Dani (Javier Pereira) , Ignacio (Oriol Vila) and Francisco (Marc Rodríguez) meet for their Sunday rituals : car driving , a paella , sunbathing on beach and a dip in the sea . They are going to suffer these changes for themselves , experiencing new loves in a way they never could have imagined . As Dani doesn't really care about the politics but finds himself trapped between love , basic humanity and the societal attitudes . Watching newspapers , they read a new decease , a schoolmate who passed way . After spotting an obituary for the classmate , they decide to attend the funeral . But they realize the recently deceased boy wasn't him . Confusion turns to coincidence as they meet a pair of young girls , Carmen (Núria Gago) , Dani's ex-lover , and Cristina (Tamara Arias) who will disrupt their perfect summer's day . As Dani is coming together Cristina , deceased's sister . But is then thrust into a situation where the stakes are far greater than he realised .
Close Dramedy concerning about sensitive friendship , death , repentance , emotion , and a moving romance ; including enjoyable interpretations with outcast roles were pretty well developed . As their touching love story becomes extremely affecting , partly because it's so innocent and partly because it's under threat of being ripped apart by a twisted lie . It may not totally get to the heart of some of the themes it raises , but it results in an exciting fresco with social fable , thoughtful issues , juvenile lives and by the end manages to be pretty touching . This thought-provoking and brooding flick concerning sweet and heartbreaking story of an enjoyable love given extra power by dealing with a moving portrait of youthful ; however , the picture relies heavily on the lively relationship among three protagonists and the subsequently love affair between Dani/Javier Pereira and Cristina/Tamara Arias . This can be the story of many faceless and nameless youngsters in any country who live , enjoy and love themselves . "Your Life in 65" pays tribute to ¨Kamchatka¨ by Marcelo Piñeyro with Ricardo Darin , Cecilia Roth , when two principal stars meet in the movie theater talking about their loving existences . Similarly , several images in rapid speed bear remarkable resemblance to 'Wonderland' by Michael Winterbottom . Main actors and support players give splendid performances . Both Fran Perea -who is in virtually every scene- and Tamara Arias put in extremely nice acting , which is key to ensuring the picture works . Secondary cast is pretty good such as Irene Montalà as Carolina , Núria Gago as Carmen , Ivan Massagué as Tillo and Àngela Jové as Dani's mummy .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Maria Ripoll . Maria Ripoll was born in 1964 in Barcelona, Catalonia , Spain and considered to be one of the best Spanish female filmmakers . She is a good director and assistant director , being especially known for the successful ¨Tortilla Soup¨ (2001) , ¨Lluvia En Zapatos¨ or ¨The Man with Rain in His Shoes¨ (1998) and ¨Rastres de Sàndal¨ (2014). Maria has directed known international stars such as Penélope Cruz , Lena Headey , Héctor Helizondo , Leonardo Sbaraglia , Tchéky Karyo , Jacqueline Obradors , Elizabeth Peña , Douglas Henshall , Mark Strong , among others . She also made a thriller that failed at box office titled ¨Utopia¨ with Najwa Nimri , José Garcia , Emma Vilarasau and Fele Martínez . And this one , "Your Life in 65" , that won several prizes and nominations , as won Barcelona Film Award Best Screenplay : Albert Espinosa , Nominated Barcelona Film Award Best Actress : Tamara Arias , Best Director and Best Score : Maria Ripoll and finally Nominated Butaca Awards (2007) to Best Catalan Film .
