Each and every one of us are characters in the eyes of others.
For the love of Christ, what piece of role Javier Gutiérrez has played in this film, of equal or more quality than his Robles character in 'La Isla Mínima'. A character full of emotions, his desire to write a good book upsets the lives of all the people he knows. Slow movie, not recommended for people who like flashes and fast scenes. Instead, film based on the details, with a great weight in the role of Alvaro in the whole plot. The psychological complexity of his role is impressive and Gutiérrez's performance is masterful. It is a very sad film, which teaches us the power of never being satisfied where we are and where we are going. Each and every one of us are characters in the eyes of others in this plot that we call life. We have to be the protagonist of our life. One of the final scenes of the film, when Alvaro is in the police car on the way to the prison is great, spooky. Speaking alone, sobbing, laughing, his dialogue with his person, all those details were a bomb. Great movie, but it does not have a closure in relation to his wife and his teacher, one of the weak points of the plot.
