Storyline

Spain. The Basque Country. Sometime in the 90s. Josu Jon, a young member of a terrorist organization, has suffered an almost complete memory loss after being wounded in a shooting with the Spanish police. As he awaits for his trial, his condition is being treated at the prison hospital. Other inmates belonging to the same organization try to make him remember how brave a "gudari" -a Basque soldier- he is and how he must go back to the armed fight for the independence of their country as soon as he gets out of prison. Meanwhile, Xabier, a college professor who has been death-threatened by the terrorists due to his political views on the Basque situation, is having an affair with Francesca, a young psychologist who happens to end up trying to help Josu Jon recover his memory. A warm feeling of mutual affection grows between her and her patient. At a point, it doesn't seem to be clear whether Josu Jon really wants to recover his memory or rather forget forever who he actually is. Written by Julián Valcárcel-Carbonell

Drama/Thriller about sad events in Basque Country in which happened terrorism , threats and grisly killings
10 August 2014 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spain, The Basque Country or Pais Vasco , sometime in the 90s . Josu Jon (Oscar Jaenada of Camaron) is a young member of the terrorist organization ETA that brutally killed about one thousand people and acting similarly to Sicilian Mafia . Jon has suffered an almost complete record loss after being wounded in a shooting with the Ertzainza or Basque police . As he awaits for his trial, his condition is being treated at the prison hospital . Other inmates (Adolfo Fernandez) belonging to the same organization attempt to make him remember his previous deeds and how he must go back to the armed fight as soon as he gets out of jail . On the other hand , Xabier Legazpi (Jose Coronado) , an University professor, is threatened for his political views and his criticism to violence on the situation of the Basque Country where rules Law of Silence and ¨Omerta¨. Due to his political views on the Basque situation he is marginalized and suffers ostracism , though he attempts to do an ordinary life . Despite the constant threats and the warnings of the Police , he usually walks without fright though protected by bodyguards . He is having an affair with Francesca (Vanessa Incontrada) , an Italian girl who is surprised on a daily basis with what she sees on the streets and places of the Basque Country . Francesca, an intelligent and gorgeous woman , works as a psychologist in a sanitarium . At a point, it doesn't seem to be clear whether Josu Jon really wants to recover his memory or rather forget forever who he actually is . A warm feeling of mutual affection grows between her and her patient , Josu . The terrorist who has lost his memory, is shown again , still under strict medical supervision but now in the sanitarium where Francesca , Xabier's girlfriend , works . A delightful and enjoyable feeling seems to grow between Francesca and Josu Jon as Francesca wants to help him recover his memory .

Moving drama/thriller plenty of emotion , suspense , intrigue , delusions , plot twists , and real events about Basque Country . Despite being somewhat of a cinematic cliché, rarely has a feature been so aptly deserving of its description as a thriller picture along with some elements from action genre , politics , intense drama and bloody terrorism . The picture depicts a nice portrayal about Basque habits , as there appears ordinary drink as ¨Chacoli¨ , ¨Cocochas of Merluza¨ , Basque Pinchos eaten at the traditional meals of his Sociedad Gastronómica or Txokos , Basque parades as well as local police called Ertzainza . The picture is pretty well , but also has conventional pitfalls . Because the story needs a vibration more real than the one offered in this sometimes slow-moving flick , though also contains interesting scenes , thrilling images and sensitive moments . Anyway, its is compensated with the great performances from main cast , and support cast such as Iñaqui Miramon , Adolfo Fernandez , Txema Blasco , Iñaqui Font , Mariana Cordero , interpreters who provided a considerable boost to the result . Fine acting by Oscar Jaenada as a terrorist who a bullet has reached his left brain hemisphere resulting in an almost complete memory loss , Jose Coronado as Xabier, a college professor who has been death-threatened by the terrorists and Vanessa Incontrada as Francesca, a young psychologist who happens to end up trying to help Josu Jon recover his memory . Atmospheric musical score by Angel Illaramendi who composes a stirring soundtrack . Colorful as well as evocative cinematography by Gonzalo Berridi .

The motion picture perfectly produced by magnificent producer Enrique Cerezo was compellingly directed by Manuel Gutierrez Aragon , a good Spanish movies director . Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón was born on January 2, 1942 in Torrelavega, Cantabria, where uses to set most of films , including Valley Pas . He is a writer and director, known for Habla, Mudita (1973), Camada Negra (1977) , Maravillas (1981) , Demonios en el Jardín (1982) , Feroz (1984) , Visionarios (2001) and this his last movie Todos Estamos Invitados (2008) . He began working in cinema in 1973 when he filmed ¨Habla Mudita ¨ , this debut feature by acclaimed Spanish director deals with a strange relationship between a mature men and a mute villager and set in rural country from Valley Pas similarly to La Vida Que Te Espera (2004) . Manuel Gutierrez is a well recognized filmmaker both nationally and internationally, and in proof of it he won many prizes among which there are the following ones : David di Donatello Awards , Moscow International Film Festival , and San Sebastian International Festival award to ¨Demonios en Jardin¨ , Goya Awards 1987 to ¨La Mitad del Cielo¨ , Cinema Writers Circle Awards, Spain and Berlin Internation Festival 1996 to ¨Rey del Rio¨ , Biarritz International Festival awards and Goyas 2003 to ¨Caballero Don Quijote¨ , among others .
