Tomás (Javier Cámara) flies from Montreal to Madrid to see best friend Julián (Ricardo Darín), who has decided to forgo his cancer treatment and spend his final days tying up loose ends, which includes finding a new companion for his dog Truman. To the disappointment of Julián’s sister Paula (Dolores Fonzi), Tomás can’t change his mind. Winner of Goyas (the Spanish “Oscar”) for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Lead Actor (Darín) and Supporting Actor (Cámara), this captivating road movie is as much comedy as tearjerker, as Tomás indulges charming Julian’s visits to friends, relatives and prospects for his beloved Bullmastiff. Terrific performances grace a tale both touching and supremely funny. In Spanish with English subtitles. Writers: Tomas Aragay, Cesc Gay. Director: Cesc Gay. (Spain 2015) 108 min.
