Fernando Fernán Gómez,
Julián receives an unexpected visit from his friend Tomás, who lives in Canada. The two men, accompanied by Julián's faithful dog, Truman, will share emotional and surprising moments prompted by Julián's complicated situation.
The personal experience of a man who travels to the Catalan Pyrenees and doesn't know what to do with himself.
Let's see: this must be one of the most boring and pretentious films I've ever seen in my whole entire life. I watched in a preview, beside the director, the actors, and the audience could not avoid three or four strokes of laughter during this interminable bullshit about life, solitude, and sadness. I find so hard to justify a story titled "Fiction" that tries to reproduce reality's own pace and rhythm with such tedious and melancholy... During the show, a "real" accident happened: a lamp fell above the head of a guy who was seated at my left, and this moment was a great paradox, cause that event -so stupid you couldn't believe in a movie, in a "fiction", if you tried-, was by far much more interesting -the man was shocked, his head full of small pieces of glass, it was amazing!-, than the "reality" that was happening on the screen...
The idea was not so bad: to show those moments of life that are never shown in movies. But it simply doesn't work: nothing is ever happening. Nothing. The idea was not bad, but... Good try, If you care... But you won't care.
Stay away from it, it's not a film, but an experiment, and it will explode in your face!
