Despite time, one of the best Spanish films
27 August 2005 | by pdelsorSee all my reviews

The lyric feel of this film doesn't leave aside the tragedy and the comedy of the life of a group of actors (and actually of the whole of the Spanish people) in the specific context of Franco Spain. Poverty, cold, exhaustion but also love, learning, dignity. The whole story is seen through an old man's eyes (José Sacristán playing the leading role) who mixes reality and dream, remembering a story combining facts and fiction. Stubbornnes of human being facing the end of a whole world is perfectly portrayed. Individual wishes and social darkness are also confronted. Fernando Fernán-Gómez (the director, who also plays the leading role's father) is probably one of the most significant Spanish actors, directors and authors of the second half of the XX century
