Theatre actor Julián receives an unexpected visit from his childhood friend Tomás, who lives in Canada, their first meeting in many years, triggered by Julian's failing health. The two men, accompanied by Julián's faithful dog, Truman, will share emotional and surprising moments prompted by Julián's complicated situation.
"Deux amis d'enfance sont réunis après plusieurs années sans se voir. Séparés par l'océan Atlantique, les deux amis ont fait leur vie sur des continents différents, mais quand ils se retrouvent, c'est comme s'ils ne s'étaient jamais séparés. Julian et Tomas vont passer quelques jour inoubliables ensemble; à rire, à pleurer, à se rappeler des souvenirs... parce que leurs retrouvailles sont aussi des adieux"--Conteneur.

Disappointing. After such positive comments from library and professional reviewers, we expected to really enjoy this film. Instead, we found the characters flat and unappealing, the script uninspired, and even the dog failed to evoke much sympathy. We're accustomed to occasional low-key and understated fare, but this film was simply bland and uninteresting.
Especially disappointing since Ricardo Darín shines in every other role we've seen him in.

Just a beautiful movie about a profound subject (life vs death) that draws you in in spite of that. The dog deserves an Oscar. Five stars.

A Spanish amigo travels from Canada to Madrid to determine his friend's progress in his battle with lung cancer. Oh yeah, there's a beloved dog named Truman who will lose his friend if the battle over cancer is not successful. This film seems to be different from the typical medical illness film.
