This adaptation of the eponymous novel by the great Spanish satirist, Rafael Azcona, is set in the late 1950s during Spain’s dictatorship. The film follows Miguel (Raúl Arévalo), a provincial draftsman, and Antonio (Juan Diego Botto), the well-off son of an architect, as they escape the conservatism of the Spanish mainland for the sun-kissed shores of Ibiza, lured by the illusion of freedom and the promise of sexually liberated European women. The two young men join an eclectic community of bohemian vacationers and partygoers, but their stay on the bucolic island is not as carefree as they had planned. As Miguel begins to fall in love with the Parisian Odette (Stéphane Caillard), both must face moral and existential dilemmas. “Sharp, intelligent, comic, and tragic...”Begoña Piña, In Spanish with English subtitles.
