Someone said depression?
1 August 2006 | by joalogonSee all my reviews

Ten years after I'm still surprised to see that this film remains mostly unknown, even to some Coixet's fans who have appreciated her latest films. I don't know either why people talk about depression as something related to this film as for me it is the most positive and optimistic that Isabel has made until today. It's true that we accompany some people settled in the border of society passing through their depressions, people who by some reason have problems to match to the world, but every second of this film shows hope and confidence in human condition. All these lives entwined like a web, struggle to find their place and build their own solution to this world, necessarily completed by a twin soul. It joins the message of Chaplin's "Modern Times", the world isn't perfect but we have to live in and human nature is strong enough to go on. It's a tale about love and life, about self definition and identity, about depression and hope, about knowing ourselves. To help Isabel in her aim we find two of the best actors in independent cinema of that moment. Andrew and Lily are simply perfect, they make theirs the brilliant script that, like in the work of Russian master Chejov, only showing us those banal conversations between people, it allows to discover by intuition the real message that underlies the surface: those "Things I never Told You" that contain the real passion of the world.
