Movie Info

Madrid, 1987 ...is a two-character story with a verbose discourse on writing, journalism, careerism, aging and politics. Shot mostly within a very constricted space, the story follows an older, celebrated journalist Miguel (José Sacristán) who meets the beautiful and coy journalism-student Angela (María Valverde) to give an interview - but becomes intent upon seducing her. They end up spending time in the most unusual manner ...discussing literature, prose and career trajectories ...gradually

The actors give their characters a resonance beyond the symbolic, but the action doesn't quite transcend the stagy setup.

Madrid, 1987 operates on a dizzying number of levels - as a romantic comedy, a sex farce, a study of culture clash, ageism and idealism.

A sweet, sometimes dull and certainly overlong film ...

Miguel uses her beauty and placid demeanor as a screen against which to project his memories of past adventures and the ghost of his libido.

A stillborn May-November seduction makes for sexual tension and fascinating dialogue.

A perceptive, ultra-wordy stab at catching the zeitgeist at a time of change in Spain, David Trueba's two-hander nonetheless feels like a working-out of social and personal themes that hasn't quite achieved the full leap from page to film.

Seldom has a great film accomplished so much with so little. Well, that's if you consider an insanely quotable screenplay so little.

Audience Reviews for Madrid, 1987

A terrific, two-person character study, along the lines of My Dinner with Andre and The Sunset Limited. Two unlikely people, a young journalism student and her older, jaded interview subject find themselves thrust together in an awkward, almost claustrophobic, situation from which there is no hope, without outside intervention. Almost the entire film consists of their two-day conversation while awaiting rescue. A very sensual film, but somewhat philosophical as well. The two actors kept the absurd situation believable and the conversation never flagged. I very much recommend this to those who like their films wordy. In Spanish, with English subtitles.
