Storyline

In the half-light of a an old stately home, Samuel Davila and his grandfather Paul, once a revered writer, create schemes to repel the latest in a long line of psychologists come to cure the grandson of his severe agoraphobia: some delicious biscuits with added spice, a refreshing glass of water with added laxative

Marina, Samuels older sister, has been looking after this small family since the death of her parents three years earlier. This was almost certainly the cause of Samuels agoraphobia.

Then Gabriel, Samuels latest psychologist, enters their lives Gabriel is a happy person because he knows nothing better in life. Only once has he had a girlfriend, who left him to marry a whale psychologist and who now calls him every night to ask for his advice about her marriage. For Gabriel, this is not such a bad thing, he considers it part of his everyday routine. He has become accustomed to living his life with the assumption that true happiness is for others, and not for him.

A sensitive and agreeable film about enjoyable relationships with attractive characters
28 July 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

At an apartment lives Samuel Davila :Manuel Lozano, his older sister , Marina :Veronica Sanchez , and their grandfather , Fernando Fernan Gomez . Samuel has agarophobia and his sister hires psychologists to cure him. The lastest results to be Gabriel , Daniel Guzman , a likeable psychologist who had long time ago a girlfriend , leaving him for a whale psychologist , nowadays , she calls him every night to ask for his advice to be pregnant and about her marriage .

This is a pretty good film though mostly claustrophobic , being mainly set at an old stately home and a few scenarios .The picture displays an optimist and sensitive message with sympathetic roles and charming situations . As Gabriel well played by Daniel Guzman plays a always glad psychologist accostumed to live his existence with the assumption that happiness is for the others and no for himself , as he is really ingenuous because knows nothing better in his life . Excellent Manuel Lozano as the recluded teen who suffers severe agarophobia and designs plots to repele a long line of psychologists who come to cure him.Veronica Sanchez performs marvelously the good sister who sacrifices herself for her small family . Special mention for the always great Fernando Fernan Gomez as the understanding and honest grandfather who was a famous writer.

The movie contains a colorful cinematography , usually in half-light from the apartment , by David Carretero, being shot in A Coruña , Galicia. Carrereto is a profesional cameraman with national and international successes including titles as Utopia , Infierno , The nun, Los Dalton contra Lucky Luke .Moving and stirring musical score by Cesar Benito who has composed nice soundtracks as Savaged , Cielito Lindo , Tv series as Tiempo entre costuras ,Los protegidos , Sonata del silencio , La chica de ayer.The film being well produced by Julio Fernandez , Carlos Fernandez from Filmax Productions.The motion picture was compellingly directed by Gustavo Ron.He is a fine craftsman who has directed a few films and TV series as May Bakery in Brooklyn , Vivir para siempre or Way to live forever and Velvet colection series . Rating : 6.5/10 , worthwhile seeing .
