Fresh interpretations about a romantic relationship that winds up in unexpected results
30 January 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

It begins with a young, Javier Pereira, attempting to get a beautiful girl , Aura Garrido, he met at a party to like him. As two twenty and some young people share an unlikely meeting. He is a good-looking guy, a seducer who usually falls in love for women, she is a shy and charming girl. At the beginning she refuses but he doesn't give up and he convinces her to join at night and following an overlong and sympathetic conversation between them, during which he arranges to gain her attention , then emerges a mutual attraction. It concerns about talking among protagonists and precipitating to a surprising ending.

It deals with the superficiality of the human relations and the unexpected results. It takes place in a few locations, at a flat and the Madrid night streets. The two protagonists giving awesome acting, while exchange life experiences, philosophies, stakes and jokes in the typical conversational fashion, but things go wrong in the morning after and results in a disastrous conclusion . The film relies heavily on excessive dialog and sometimes monotonous conversation. It starts as a romantic piece in the firts part , it is a light, simple "Getting to know you" comedy , displaying an ordinary love story. While the second one results to be dramatic and unfolds tragical , precipitable happenings , including a disturbing battle of wits .To be said the most breathtaking issue of the film is the extreme contrast between the two different parts of the flick and how the main roles are really involved into changing situations.

It packs a colorful and adequate cinematography by Alejandro de Pablo, Sorogoyen's regular cameraman. And a sensitive and evocative musical score. The motion picture was well directed by Borja Semper and Rodrigo Sorogoyen. Borja is a good writer, producer, director assistant and filmmaker with a few films. While Rodrigo has directed successful Tv series sich as : La pecera de Eva, Fragiles, Vida loca, Impares and notorious films such as : 8 citas, May God save us 2016 with Antonio de la Torre, Javier Pereira, Roberto Alamo ,and El Reino 2018 with Antonio De la Torre, all of them have won various awards and Goyas. And furthermore, a short , Oscar nominated, titled Mother. Rating 7/10. Better than average. Notable film. Well worth seeing.
