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.

Did You Know?


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 »

A must see.
7 December 2009 | by rosywhartonSee all my reviews

I had the privilege of seeing this excellent film with a friend of the Director who had been sent a copy. I knew nothing of the plot or the Director and his style and was totally absorbed from start to finish. I don't profess to be a well viewed film critic but, in my humble opinion, this film is cleverly conceived and executed. The acting and direction is raw and the storyline develops with snippets of comedy to lighten the way whilst tackling a difficult subject. The Director brilliantly plays on the viewers assumptions and has somehow created a piece of genius on (I believe) a negative budget. He highlights the damage that can be done through lack of communication profoundly. Why the 9 and not 10? Purely due to a handful of spelling mistakes in the English subtitles - if I were fluent in Spanish I'm sure it would be a 10. I would highly recommend watching this very thought provoking and moving film.
