Great story of what could have been - or actually was
11 July 2020 | by laduqesaSee all my reviews

As I started to watch, I rapidly got bored with the street scenes but stuck with the film and came to realise that these were integral to the structure and direction of the screenplay. I then became apprehensive that this would turn into a Spanish-language version of the dreadful "Weekend" but let me say straightaway that this film is in a different and far better league than that farrago of pretension.

The dialogue was sharp, witty and captivating. The stories of the two guys were interesting and as the film moved unobtrusively into the past to tell their backstory things from the present day started to fall into place.

It was disconcerting at first that the same actors were playing their younger selves with no more than a change of clothing style, indeed grey hairs could be glimpsed sometimes in their beards as they talked together for the first time.

The story moved again to the future or the present day, but what present day? Had this all been an elaborate role play? Was everything in the imagination? Or was the final scene the true situation?

This is one of the few films I'll watch again in a few months time to see what else I can surmise about it. In the meantime, it has still got me thinking.
