Movie Info

Jorge (Quim Gutiérrez) is trying to better his life, and the first step, he believes, is to land a different job. Jorge, who spends his days working as a janitor and his nights watching his ailing father (Héctor Colomé), longs for more. Also facing crossroads in their lives are Jorge's ex-con brother, Antonio (Antonio de la Torre), who is in a relationship with a woman still in prison, and Jorge's best friend (Raúl Arévalo), who is confronting the possibility that he may be gay.

  • Director Daniel Sanchez Arvalo would have done well leaving a few subplots on the cutting-room floor. Quality almost always is better than quantity.

    October 19, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Bifurcated images, isolating the characters from their dreams and from one another, create a yearning atmosphere that pulls you in; like their director, you really want them to escape.

    October 19, 2007 | Rating: 4/5
  • Tells [a] ludicrously compact, aggressively 'heartfelt,' colorfully contrived story.

    October 16, 2007 | Full Review…
  • It's a well-acted soap with one too many plot lines, tied together by genteel audio-visual sutures and supported by the brittle metaphor of its title.

    October 14, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • What could have seemed insufferably self-pitying becomes strangely moving instead -- a sign of a filmmaker placing his absolute trust in their material and coming up all the stronger for it.

Audience Reviews for DarkBlueAlmostBlack (Azuloscurocasinegro) (Dark Blue Almost Black)

    Beautifully filmed, nice score, well-acted. The characters are well developed and deep enough to be able to feel with them.

    This is a movie about relationships -- relationships between family, between friends, between lovers, even one relationship where Jorge is trying to get his brother's girlfriend pregnant. The movie keeps you watching with its interesting concepts. I'm not sure if Jorge does learn a lesson or not by the end of the movie though.

    It's frustrating how the dialogues tend to lack subtlety, therefore cheapening the emotional connection, but the characters are very well written and everyone gives a very good performance.

    Why can't ALL movies possess such qualities?! Foreign films usually possess this sense of je ne sais quoi. Review TBA.
