Lost Embrace Reviews
love the Ramon vs El Peruano scene. that's inspired storytelling.
Daniel Hendler keeps captivating me with his average man performances that always fall into some social/cultural group in particular, creating a unique character that almost any man in that group can relate to. From his extraordinary gay man facing the first gay marriage in Spain in Reinas to his dreamy, kind of a jerk high school slacker in 25 Watts (my favorite character in a movie, by the way) and now with his wonderful display of a bored son in search of answers about his parents' past, creating a jewish character like most of the jewish twentysomethings we actually know: forgetting about tradition and religion and trying to cope with a family environment that annoys and wracks the nerves.
The whole cast is superb but without him this would be another wannabe jewish modern masterpiece lacking on the tons of charm Hendler has to offer. Definitely one of the greatest young actors working today.
Kudos to Ariel's Grandma, a beautiful character played with dexterity and high class skills by Rosita Londner.
Unforgettable piece of cinema. One of those movies I usually fall in love with: a slice of life, painted in grey and blurred colors.
Fuera de algo de cine iberico,lo mejor que he visto en habla hispana!
