Ricardo is an old man whose mind starts to fail. His family sends him to a sanatorium, where the doctors say Ricarda has the Alzheimer disease. In his time there, Ricardo meets Andres, an old man like him with a surprisingly enormous imagination. With the help of Andres and Ricardo's grand-daughter Ana, Ricardo will fight against the terrible disease he has. The movie deals with a hot point in the actual society, the Alzheimer disease, and it does it very well, the development of the story is totally believable and logic, with a great amount of feelings rising everywhere. Actors are superb, Alexandre and Lopez Vazquez has always showed it and ROndo is a new discovery. Although it is a movie that must be watched with handkerchief, it is moving and interesting, actors are impressive int heir papers and it is very well filmed. I hope it to triumph in the Goya these year. The only problem of the movie is that many times things happen excessively unsurprising, which can result boring to many people. To sum up, it is a good and touching movie, whose little errors can be forgiven due to its intense emotional charge.
