Axun and Maite met at secondary school during a repressive era that never allowed their relationship to go beyond friendship. Later on, their paths led them apart: Axun got married and moved out to the country to live on a farm, while Maite traveled the world, clarified her sexual orientation in her own mind, and now, having had a successful career as a piano teacher, she has returned to San Sebastian to take up her retirement. Fifty years on, Axun and Maite, now both seventy, meet up by chance while visiting patients in hospital. At first, they don't recognize one another, but soon long- suppressed feelings begin to emerge once more with the same intensity, and Axun is aware for the first time of her chance to start something entirely new.

Never reached it's potential
26 March 2011 | by reelchipSee all my reviews

The premise of this film was solid but it never really got going. In moments of it's character development and interaction you felt the film could be good (as in 7 out of 10). Sadly those moments were few and undeveloped (thus earning it a 4). Geriatric love, by itself, is an underdeveloped area in film. This film addresses that topic and throws in infidelity, homosexuality, offspring dissonance and dying relatives. Why not the kitchen sink? The film could not stay focused and got very slow about mid way through. It's my feeling that if the two protagonists could have been left to the job of self examination without the distractions present in the film it would have been a rewarding experience.
