Storyline

Things are not going too well for Gonzalo Montoya. At thirty he has no girlfriend (despite a mutual attraction between his cousin Pilar and himself), he is still a student and has become the despair of his mother. Yet, Gonza is an intelligent, well-bred (if not too well-dressed) and kindhearted young man. Among other things he gets on well with Maité, his downstairs neighbor and proves a wonderful tutor (not to say surrogate father) to her son Antonio. But in the eyes of the conservative society he lives in, he has a major defect, his propensity to think for himself. If he has failed his philosophy exam, it is precisely because he would not duplicate his professor's views. And now what idea has he got ? To apostatize, nothing less! Needless to say that his decision marks the beginning of a long, long...Way of the Cross! Written by Guy Bellinger

A beautiful discovery
9 February 2019 | by arkinahmtSee all my reviews

Almost missed this gem if it were for the poor rating it has on imdb. Also some of reviews here completely miss the point, in my opinion. It is not about religion or brueaucracy (as also advertised in the title summary). It is a beautiful story about learning curves. Soundtracks and shot transitions are also worth watching. I have ambivalent thoughts about the duration of the movie. One part of me wishes it were longer and told more in depth; yet this might have undermined the engagement and afterthought it offers quite well.
