An excellent film about the midlife crisis and the empty nest syndrome: Marcos and Ana powerlessly see their couple teared apart after the departure of their only son who joined Spain as part of his studies, as if their existence as a (wo)man and then as a couple were now devoid of any foundation. The script is without any surprise, it's even rather predictable with all the usual clichés. But the cast is excellent, especially Ricardo Darín and Mercedes Morán.
