Madrid-based Julián receives an unexpected visit from old friend Tomás. This will be no ordinary reunion – Tomás now lives in Canada and the two haven’t seen each other in many years, but also because Julián has decided to discontinue treatment for the terminal illness he has been battling. Instead he wants to concentrate on putting his affairs in order, the most pressing of these concerns being to find a new home for his beloved dog Truman. Ricardo Darín (The Secret in Their Eyes) and Almodóvar regular Javier Cámara (Talk to Her, I’m So Excited) are excellent as the two friends reunited for one last time in this poignant, often funny well-observed yet humanely witty film.
“One of Spain’s most original and underrated directors … The two leads give a masterclass in unfussy low-key acting”. Sight & Sound. “Wistful and well-observed… amusing and affecting…” – Variety
