Storyline

Recently released from jail, Andrés experiences an emotional rupture from his 12-year-old son, José Ramón, following a dark family tragedy that nobody is bold enough to confront. Also, a victim of the same non-communication, the boy's grandmother tries her best at normalizing their lives, but she had neither counted on the incapacity of Andrés at forgetting the past nor the increasingly peculiar behavior of José Ramón. All three of them awkwardly attempt to suture the rift, only to worsen the situation with every attempt, leading them slowly to the brink of a new and permanent disaster.

Trivia

For the 'dead cat' scene, the cat (whose real name was Satan, and for the exact reasons mentioned by the boy in the film), was given a little dose of tranquilizer by the vet for the scene. But, famously lazy, the cat took this opportunity to sleep for a further 4 hours. He was entirely asleep for the next 'your cat smells' scene (deleted in shorter version). See more »

Gripping story of a boy and his father who has just been released from jail
1 January 2010 | by chlozzerSee all my reviews

The film moves at an excellent pace, keeping the viewer interested throughout. It is an emotional film and it is not clear where the film is going until the end. It is a well thought through story with fantastic performances, especially from the son. The story coheres together exceptionally well although if I was to criticise at all it may be that the reaction from others to father's behaviour is not quite as realistic as I would envisage. The grandmother also adds a very believable character to the story. I would recommend this to any adult to watch, and I hope they enjoy it. There is no hint here of any production constraints which is incredible when you learn that this film was made from nothing but people's generosity. A true gem in amongst so many films.
