Hailing from disparate backgrounds, Karl and Albert bond over their desire to escape their small town existence and move to Barcelona, in search of a happier life. With their mutual sense of humor and provocative ideas, they decide to document their youthful adventures with the dream of sharing their passions publicly. Upon settling and realizing life is not as easy as expected, their resistance to normalcy finds them walking divergent paths. Unbeknownst to Karl, Albert starts experiencing personal troubles but pride and fear of revealing his secrets drives him to the edge. What was originally meant to be a harmless idea becomes an instrument for self-destruction as Albert documents his own tragic exposè.
I was absolutely surprised by this gem of a film. I could see why it did well at so many festivals. A story about two friends so beautifully acted with authenticity and depth that it never felt contrived. In less adept hands this film could not have worked. It was so well acted and directed that it felt like I was watching something so private and personal. Two friends who have everything in front of them, love, living, and ultimately the choices they make alter who they will become. I highly recommend this film to all. LOVED IT.
