Storyline

Lucía's heart misses a beat when she sees a man of her age, Juan in a department store. Without hesitating, she decides to follow him to his house, the same house where, twenty-five years before, while the Franco regime was on its last leg, Juan first met Lucía and fell in love with her... They were seventeen then, and invented a language of their own from across the balconies. But Juan was a boy from a humble family from the outskirts of the city, and Lucía's parents had big plans for her. Lucía chose the security offered by her wealthy boyfriend, the first of her suitable relationships; and it's only after meeting Juan, much later, that she realizes how much she had given up to achieve the status that her parents had dreamed of. Lucía decides to move across the street from Juan to get close to him and rekindle their dialogues across balconies from the past. However, Juan's life has changed, does he want to open up the wounds Lucia left in his heart when they were teenagers? Written by ElianaM

The film
20 September 2004 | by martyn-jonesSee all my reviews

The criticism here was not really anything to do with the movie.

Using a criticism of a film to attack Almudena Grandes is shallow, cowardly and cheap.

The movie itself is well produced, well directed and follows the narrative.

Why is it that people are so hung up about writers who write about sex?

Almudena Grandes is a woman, she supports the communist party and she wrote about sex.

Maybe the issue is elsewhere?

Maybe the issue is about peoples inability to handle sex in literature?

Maybe it's peoples inability to take it or leave it?

Maybe it's about peoples inner problems?

Maybe it has nothing to do with the movie or the writer at

all.
