Quotes:
Jorge:Me neither, I drink my coffee every night before going to bed
Matraca:Me too, when I'm with my buddies we always have coffee. But we drink it during daytime
Jorge:With the old guys
Matraca:With my buddies, the young guys
Jorge:What do you mean by young guys. Are they your age. If they are your age than that's not young anymore. You have lived many spring times, you're not that young any more
Matraca:Well, I'm still young at heart. I don't feel old...
Jorge:One thing is to feel and another is to be old
Matraca:- like some guys who feel old. Not me. The only thing that's old are the roads... and we're still on them

Fishing with Natan, 7 February 2011
Author: birthdaynoodle from garbanzo

Have you watched 'Fishing with John', John Lurie's tongue-in-cheek series of short documentaries, in each of which he takes one of his celebrity friends (Tom Waits, William Dafoe, Jim Jarmusch, etc.) fishing at an exotic location? This documentary is similar, only it's the real deal... There are no celebrities here and there's no messing around. You're invited to watch three generations of men (the youngest of which is a young boy called Natan) fishing freely off the coast of Mexico. For just over an hour you can forget about Facebook or Twitter, and observe what comes through as a beautiful, surprisingly bare way of life that is intrinsically connected to the wildlife and nature.

Before Natan splits to Rome indefinitely with his Italian mother, his Mexican father and grandpa give the child a taste of what it's like to be a fisherman. Director Pedro González-Rubio does a great job at capturing on film the family's situation and a sense of the kind of memories that Natan is to carry with him across to Europe.
