Lively and emotive drama based on a novel by Lorenzo Silva , this movie deals with a special love story between a mature manager and a teenager .

When he gets to meet the beautiful girl , his perception of life and friendship are utterly changed , but the events go awry .
"The Weakness of the Bolshevik" turns out to be a moving drama well realized by Manuel Martin Cuenca about a marvelous friendship leads into a tragedy . This is a thought-provoking as well as intense flick filmed with great sensitivity and feeling . It's an intelligent and touching story although sometimes is slow moving and tiring but is finely developed with sense of style and sensibility . Very pleasant drama filled with emotion , artistic scenes and plenty of sensitivity . The picture relies heavily on the unusual and tragic relationship between a frustrated businessman and a 14-year-old student , but it doesn't makes boring , but results to be entertaining . This is a pleasant movie plenty of good feeling , drama , stirring scenes and a peculiar love story . Interesting screenplay by the same filmmaker , Martin Cuenca , who often writes his own scripts , and sometimes with his friend Alejandro Hernández . This is one of those rare gems that does not stray from its purpose - to be a celebration of love and romance and a sensitive tale . Terrific acting by the great Luis Tosar and an attractive as well as newcomer Maria Valverde . Support cast is frankly well such as Rubén Ochandiano , Jordi Dauder , Enriqueta Carballeira and Nathalie Poza , among others .
Emotive musical score by Roque Baños , the soundtrack flows great with the film in every way, and creates an agreeable atmosphere in every moment , including a sensitive leitmotif . Baños is a successful composer such as ¨Fragiles¨ , ¨The Machinist¨ , ¨Sexy beast¨ , ¨800 bullets¨ and composing Hollywood pictures such as ¨Old Boy¨ . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Alfonso Parra filmed in Madrid and its Temple of Debod . The film was well produced by José Miguel Juárez , Alfonso Lanza , Antonio Romero and compellingly directed by Manuel Martin Cuenca . Martin Cuenca has established himself as one of Spain's most artistically astute directors , his works consistently evolving in skill and style . Manuel Martín Cuenca was born on November 30, 1964 in Almería , Almería, Andalucía , location where he usually shoots his pictures . He is a good director and writer, known for Malas Temporadas (2005) , 4 Puntos Cardinales (2002) , being his best movies : Caníbal or Cannibal (2013) and this La Flaqueza Del Bolchevique (2003) . Rating : Better than average . Worthwhile watching .
