I could not get the ending
4 September 2017 | by tomokoiSee all my reviews

Augusto fell in love with Nastenka and Veronica like Augusto. Nastenka told Augusto that she would not want to get married and have children in her life because it would be very boring. However, she did both with her boyfriend who was not dependable to her. On the other hand, Veronica was cooking for Augusto and she took a kind of a caretaker role for Augusto. Augusto thought Veronica was looking for marriage to become a housewife, but Veronica preferred casual dating to marriage. Veronica appeared to be conservative, but she was more liberal. Nastenka appeared to be more liberal and she wanted to be an actress, but she could not give up her boyfriend who was not always good to her. Augusto felt powerless over Nastenka. He died of food poisoning from Sardine. At the end, he was sitting at the bench he used to see Nastenka and he was finding a new girl again. He was repeating this. However, I could not get what he was repeating. Is he repeating romance which does not go anywhere or is he still searching his soulmate? I could not get what he was searching for.
