Elsa y Fred (2005)
Extraordinary Performances & A Great Script
I must say I'm very impressed with this movie. When I read it was about an old man that meets this old woman, I thought I wasn't gonna like it. However, many people recommended so I watched it. And it was good, VERY, VERY GOOD. It has a little bit of everything, is a movie where you'll laugh and cry, the actors that play "Elsa & Fred" are simply FLAWLESS. The story is well-developed. I highly recommend it, and I will certainly have in mind next time that a movie with an old couple as the main characters can be excellent, like "Elsa & Fred" is.
Some of my favorite scenes of the movie is where Elsa is inside her car singing "Hoy puede ser un gran dia" ("Today can be a great day") by the amazing Joan Manuel Serrat. Here's the translation of the song:
Today can be a great day, think of it that way, making the most of it or wasting it... it all depends on you. Give the day to the experience of a new start, and receive it like a party that you never want to end.
Don't let your day fade, consume life completely. Today can be a great day, make it work.
Today can be a great day where everything is about to be discovered. If you live it as the last one you are ever going to live. Take your instincts and let them breathe out in the sun. And don't restrict your pleasures, make them endless if you can.
If the routine doesn't let you breathe say NO to mediocrity. Today can be a great day, give yourself an opportunity.
Today can be a great day impossible to recover, an unique thing... don't let it escape. That everything around you is there just for you. Don't look from a window, get inside of it.
Fight for what you want and don't get desperate if everything isn't okay. Today can be a great day... and tomorrow too.
