Storyline

10-year-old Manu from Madrid arrives in Murcia in southern Spain surrounded by a lush landscape by the sea. He is sent by his parents who are trying to sort out a marital separation.

The eccentric collection of family members includes a sharp-as-nails grandfather, uncle Juan, a heartsick watercolor painter and poet, uncle Fernando, a bisexual whose lover has just ended their affair to marry a woman, and young cousin Fuensanta who gives him his first taste of puppy love.

Won the award Paoa from Viña del Mar in 1998
22 February 2001 | by ctosangel-2See all my reviews

This film, made in Murcia (southeast of Spain) won the award Paoa in the International Festival of Cinema from Viña del Mar (Chile) in October'98, "for the sensitivity ant depth, the mood and the warm of the creation", said the jury. This jury unanimous decision was a surprise and deception between Alejandro Amenabar Spanish fans, who were awaiting the award for the "modern" Open Yours Eyes (a kind of Matrix with less money than the Wachowski's film).
