Movie Info

Max (Fernando Fernán Gómez), the wealthy family patriarch and head of a pharmaceuticals business, is dying of cancer and has relocated from Madrid to a Paris hospital for treatment. The members of his family, including his wife, Marie (Geraldine Chaplin), have gathered around him there. Victor (Leonardo Sbaraglia), the youngest son and last to arrive in Paris, lives in Argentina and has no ties to the family business. He sees Max, who is becoming incoherent and confused, secretly throwing away his medicine, pretending to sleep, and attempting to escape from the hospital. Victor notices that Max appears to be afraid of something, but he can't tell if his fear is well founded or if he is just delusional. In the midst of family conflict and questions about the inheritance, Victor helps Max search for answers about a mysterious figure from his past who may or may not exist, while encountering opposition from other family members. ~ Todd Kristel, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for The City of No Limits

Hay Leo Leo, pero que bueno estas!!!!! Esta pelicual es kind of lenta, muy buena actuacion, en un momento llegue a pensar que el tipo estaba realmente enfermo!!! cautivadora e interesante, no se la pierdan!!!!

Interesting movie. very good movie excellent!! This is a Spanish drama (melodrama) with a little bit of mystery twist tossed in. Rich Family Crazy father who is dying. Medical decisions to be made. Leonardo Sbaraglia and Fernando Fernan Gomez are great in their roles. Of Course F F Gomez is really one of the grand old actors of all time on the Spanish stage and screen. Geraldine Chapman is also of course fabulous!! I would comment much more on the plot --except to say that the complex mysterious family matter does resolve themselves and the old man dies and the Mom proves what a bitch she is.!! A lot happens in between and its interesting moving fare. I also especially enjoyed the music in this film. I have a some what hi end audiophile system I play my movie DVD s with. The entry music and first 15 minutes or so of music sounded especially clear crisp and REAL!! Very exotic transparent and clear Really Excellent Music and Sound!! Be sure and read the review by the guy on the Boston Globe. Anyway I really enjoyed this movie 4 stars maybe 5 stars excellent movie!!

Too melodramatic for me. It is just an overblown [i]Novela[/i], that is too long and filled with many storylines that distract from the main narrative. What a disappointment.
