Faithfully recreated from the book
26 October 2009 | by ezehomoSee all my reviews

Marcos, Jaime and Jose build up a particular relationship in their lives. The story about three painters and friends is going to be the excuse the director focuses on to tell something about personal affairs, friendship and how love can be shared. As part of it, painting will be the connecting thread so that the three main characters express their fears, frustrations and ambitions. The rhythm is slow, sometimes seems slow motion, though it is offset by an intimate closeness with the characters, to whom the spectator almost knows at the end. Also the music and interior shots make the film cozier and suitable to describe in a particular way the world of art in the eighties/nineties in Spain. If you are expecting a masterpiece, won't find, but will discover three personal stories that seem to be only one.
