Storyline

-Spoilers- Ana has just been dumped by her boyfriend Manuel. While living with him, she never liked him owning a pet because she thought it was cruel for the animal and not very hygienic. Once she even convinced Manuel to get rid of a turtle that was given to him as a birthday present. But now she has decided to get a puppy, partly as revenge for leaving her and partly to help her forget about him. She names him "Man" because he sees him as half "Manuel" but still twice the man he was. Time goes by and the dog grows up but she can't forget her ex-boyfriend, and she doesn't want the dog anymore. So she plans to give him away, as a Christmas present, to her brother. She leaves him in the car and has dinner with her family but when she comes back to get him, the car is gone and so is the dog. She feels very sad and tries to find Man. Until one day, Manuel shows up at her door with him. He tells Ana a story of how he bought the dog at the market they used to visit when they were together,... Written by Erumpent & Rmdesouza

Nice Latin shorty
30 January 2014 | by bts1984See all my reviews

This españolito was introduced to me by my Spanish teacher (who also teaches french) and what I got was a pleasant short. I thank my teacher for introducing me to it.

The idea behind this short is original and probably would work just as fine if this was a full-length movie, but I personally think that for its runtime of merely 11 minutes it is very complete and surprisingly moving, so I guess that it wouldn't be much of a need to make a full length picture out of this.

On a brief word about the plot, I must say that the girls's reasons are a bit hard and selfish, especially towards the innocent animal. On the bright side, she has a change of heart after a somewhat bad start. By the way, "Man" is a most unusual name for a dog, but strangely it sounds humorous to name a dog like that.

Title in Portugal: me don't know.
