Atter watching it again, it still manages to move me like the first time. The Medem touch is very present (kudos to Sánchez Arévalo too), his whimsical dreamy world of synchronicity is recreated in a few lines, in a few scenes. At the moment I am watching lots of shorts, and studying them, because I am in the process of writing my first one. It seems to me that it is much easier to make a funny short story that a dramatic one, that most directors tend to overuse the voice-over or the dialogue (talking heads kind of short) and that the time span covered is rarely long. In this case, there is a sense of balance between the characters' voices and the narrator's and the story told spans 30 years. Inspiring piece of work, spiritually charged, full of compassion.
Thank you, guys.
If you want to watch it, you can find it in the collection "The best shorts of Spanish cinema" by Fnac.
