The story of three brothers at two different times of their lives is that proposed by the director Miguel Santesmases to combine drama and romantic comedy. Three brothers will spend the last weekend of the summer holidays at his home in Galicia. Boris , Carlos and Alex are sad because they are no longer there anymore because it is on sale . Each has a very different personality. Boris , the oldest, is a playboy , crazy and irresponsible. Carlos takes the family business of the family, a printing press. And Alex will do a master in the United States. This weekend will be a fact that will mark their lives forever.
"Dias azules" manages to make the most of its simple plot line. Although it's being marketed as somewhat of a comedy, this movie isn't a comedy per se. It's a coming of age movie, and a pretty good one. The soundtrack is great, and the fact that the setting is in a small town is interesting (given that a lot of movies in this vein have been set in Madrid or Barcelona lately.)I liked the fact that the relationship between the brothers wasn't over sentimentalized. "Dias azules" is a movie where not a lot happens, the characters lives are marked by one big event and then the rest of the film bares this out. I like that not all of the characters' lives are neatly wrapped up.
Also, this movie has nothing to do with the external review in Variety, about a documentary about digging up Civil War graves, also called "Dias azules."
