What Max Said

“A fresh, rigorous film that marks a potential new departure for the Spanish cinema. Economically shot on 16mm and blown up, it explores the predicament of an introspective middle-aged writer, struggling without success to establish new relationships. He fights to put meaning back into his life, but his composer friend kills himself, his daughter runs away, his girlfriend quarrels. It's a painful, but sympathetic and believable portrait of a man trying to make up for past mistakes and establish a foothold in his life. The leading role is played not by an actor, but a sociologist.”
