Life ain't easy...
27 April 2006 | by rainking_esSee all my reviews

Actually "Hector" is the story of three weeks in the life of Tere (great Adriana Ozores) and of those that surround her. She has just lost her sister, but they had been not speaking to each other for three years. Now Tere will have to look after her dead sister's only son, Héctor, and apart from that she'll have to face some troubles with her husband and her daughter, but specially sh'ell have to face a deep inner change.

This is a film with a huge emotional charge, it is so reflexive and relies on the strength of the words and of the dialogs. Is there any weak point? Yes, there is one weak point in "Hector": as in many Spanish productions the younger actors does not rise the occasions, and the guy that plays Héctor looks rather unconvincing.

In short: one of the best Spanish movies of the last year.

*My rate: 8/10
