A pleasant good movie, worth watching.
16 February 2004 | by BiBreSee all my reviews

Born at the turn of the 20th Century, but long after his demise, 'Papa' wanders again, looking through the window glasses at La Vigía.

Powerful drama, picturesque locations, a haunting musical score and splendid natural performances. Specially that of young actress Laura de la Uz as Larita.

I have been fortunate to watch this movie right from the personal collection of my close friend, Modesto Alanis von der Meden, cast for the role of Hemingway.

Not an actor but a successful Mexican businessman and also a hunter, Modesto was chosen for the role not only for his amazing likeness to 'Papa', but also for his similar character and great charisma. I think he performed wonderfully although his role was but a brief one in the movie.

A pleasing memento. Having one evening a trivial chat with my friend, over coffee, a glass of stupendous rum and with a splendid cigar aroma filling his cozy personal den, he talked about his unforgettable experiences, as a first-time actor, back in the production days. He also recalled that locals were many times stunned when seeing him around Hemingway's place, so many years after his demise. Were they perhaps seeing the wandering ghost of the Old Man, still searching for his long gone shark-eaten fish in the immensity of the Sea ... who knows what lingering thoughts were still haunting in their minds ... Anyway, a very pleasant evening altogether.

"Allá arriba, junto al camino, en su cabaña, el viejo dormía nuevamente. ... El viejo soñaba con leones en la playa."

Now I know how to greet my friend, ... "Hello, Hemingway!"
