Storyline

Axun and Maite met at secondary school during a repressive era that never allowed their relationship to go beyond friendship. Later on, their paths led them apart: Axun got married and moved out to the country to live on a farm, while Maite traveled the world, clarified her sexual orientation in her own mind, and now, having had a successful career as a piano teacher, she has returned to San Sebastian to take up her retirement. Fifty years on, Axun and Maite, now both seventy, meet up by chance while visiting patients in hospital. At first, they don't recognize one another, but soon long- suppressed feelings begin to emerge once more with the same intensity, and Axun is aware for the first time of her chance to start something entirely new. Feelings once illicit which, fifty years ago, she was unable and forbidden to identify, force her to reassess her marriage and to embark on a journey of self-knowledge. When Maite invites her to the island of Santa Clara, Axun has to decide whether... Written by Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Very Powerful
13 October 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

80 egunean leaves me thinking: this movie is definitely based on a true story, otherwise Illmar Raag (writer and director) is a genius. It's one of those movies that makes me forget all the overrated action movies I've seen in the past months immediately.

For many movies I've watched in this genre, I just wished the story wasn't that louse or the acting was a bit more credible. The story of 80 egunean is rich and the acting is brilliant. Nice and appropriate music, good camera work, it's all there!

If one would say 'very good acting, knowing these people are seventy years old', I'd correct them with 'very good acting and WOW these people are seventy!' If one gets older, one acts better?

Don't expect a psychological masterpiece full of plot twists and surprises every couple of minutes. Don't expect a boring and predictable "I've seen it all before"-drama either! Expect a movie that slowly captures you and once it does, you'll feel sympathy, anger, compassion and sometimes you will even laugh too.

Although I was not watching this movie with smiling faces, I just wish it was a true story. It's so beautiful and catching. It's like a modern, non-cheesy and innovative fairy-tale.

Before watching the movie, I thought by myself: how will I explain to my friends that I've been watching a movie about grandma's who feel very close to each other? Isn't that weird? Now, I cannot wait to tell them. And no, it isn't weird at all!

Whether you like drama or not, 80 egunean will definitely get to you.
