Deep and sensible
26 July 2008 | by (Uruguay) – See all my reviews

I think this is a film about life, the passing of time and getting older. It is a slow moving film, not much dialog and little action.But this is necessary to get you into the situation. Juan is a middle-age man who notices that he is getting old (he cannot see without glasses anymore). At the same time his wife is pregnant and his father is dying. These facts lead him to a journey throughout his life, an inside journey. "The other" is the man that he is not any longer, or the one that he is never going to be (other professions, other backgrounds).Life, death and time. The film is simple in appearance: Juan takes a bus and walks along the streets, meets different people, changes his name, etc. but it invites you to feel and understand his experience, that is human experience. Juan is very well performed by Julio Chávez and the characters look like people in a dream. In fact, I think that if it would have been a dream it wouldn't make any difference. i do not recommend this film to very young people, of those who like action and a clear argument. It is a film for people in the forties who like to think and discuss about important things in life.
