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.
