Storyline

Juan and Teresa have been lovers for two years. The day before she leaves to live in London, he abandons the apartment they were sharing. Juan embarks on a series of encounters with other women. He only allows himself to meet them by chance. Every afternoon at the same time, he sits on the same bench in a park, and then he also sits at the same table in the same bar. Shortly thereafter, using these methods, he meets both Alicia and Ana. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Great film
31 October 2005 | by tim-downieSee all my reviews

Don't waste your time reading the other review, go and see it!

This is a film which is funny and charming in an original way, but don't expect fast action or a twisty plot, go and watch a Hollywood movie if that's what you want.

The main character sits at the came bench every day and the same café table every evening to see what happens and whom he meets. The point of the film is not simply to see if he can find love and live happily ever after but to get to know the characters he meets and follow the discussions that develop throughout the film. The characters are very strong backed up by good acting, and has a very Spanish feel to it.
