Manu Aranguren is the contact person from the Spanish government in the negotiations with terrorist group ETA. But the dialog is influenced by errors and chance, leaving the personal relationships of the negotiators as key to its outcome.
Attractive and decent dramedy about the complex and thunderous relationship among two siblings
This exciting story is set in the 90s , during the economic boom and subsequent crisis, dealing with two different and contender siblings, a peculiar duo of antagonist brothers , a good guy , the wealthy insurance representative Carlos Lobo : Carlos Hipolito and a bad guy Antonio, Tony, Lobo : the hustler and swindler played by Juanjo Puigcorbe. Meanwhile, both of whom attempt to sell insurances and living a triangular love story with the wife, Julia Cañas, Lydia Bosch.
This is a dramedy , a first part is more comedy than drama , second part is mostly drama, relying heavily on a loving triangle and an interesting sibling confrontation . A Cain and Abel tale in which two brothers become involved into a complex and troublesome relationship throughout the Catalan coast while selling insurances and the confrontation among 2 siblings for a woman . Trio protaganist is pretty good, such as Carlos Hipolito as the sensible and responsible Carlos , Juanjo Puigcorbe as the selfish and vagrant Antonio and Lydia Bosch as the disconcerting spouse Julia . Support cast is frankly well, such as Juan Echanove, Roberto Cairo, Walter Vidarte, Chema Muñoz and brief cameos by Jordi Molla and Pedro Casablanc .
It contains an evocative and colorful cinematography by the prestigious Flavio Martinez Laviano. And atmospheric musical score in synthesizer composed by Bingen Mendizabal .And an agreeable screenplay plenty of surprises by the notorious writer Joaquin Oristell,
usual collaborator to Barroso . Being professionally produced by director Fernando Colomo . From now on , a generation of filmmakers of the 90s will finance new directors to make attractive films. The motion picture was well directed by Mariano Barroso in his film debut and it had awesome critics . It won Goya best new director : Mariano Barroso and nominated Best supporting actor Juan Echanove. And Sant Jordi awards to Best new director and best actor Juanjo Puigcorbe. Barroso started working as an advert director, and debuts with this Mi Hermano del alma . He is a nice craftsman who has made a few good films, such as : Extasis , Todas las mujeres , Lo mejor de Eva, Kasbah and Hormigas en la boca, Lobos de Washington , at his best . Nowadays, he directs TV series as El dia del mañana and La linea invisible . Rating : acceptable and passable
