End of the Century

Romance Drama


 

Two amorous encounters between two men in Barcelona twenty years apart, and what their lives might be had they stayed together in the interim.

"End of the Century" is narrated in moods rather than conversation. The opening sequences set the scene with nothing being spoken for more than ten minutes, and no soundtrack to fill the gap. The romance between the leads is beautifully captured and describes what it is to live in the moment, or as we live decade to decade, how precious some moments remain. Time is not time at all particularly when coincidences and synchronicities are at play. Begin again.
