Xosé Manuel Olveira 'Pico',
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
The film shows you how hard it is in Spain to excommunicate yourself from the catholic religion. This film may be some kind of slow, i must admit I enjoyed it a lot of times. The main actor is excellent. The film is based on his life. He co scripted the film. Esthetically, the film has some weaknesses. I recommend it more for the profoundness and the absurdity it shows. Or for anyone in search to discover the new Spanish cinema. Next film should be even better. I watched it at hamburg festival with some friends. half of us really enjoyed the film, the other half less... I hope the film will be distributed in Germany. The film has been to many festivals.
