(TODAS LAS CANCIONES HABLAN DE MÍ)
2010, Jonás Trueba, Spain, 104 min.
With Oriol Vila, Bárbara Lennie
In his directing debut, Jonás Trueba (son of Fernando and co-screenwriter of THE DANCER AND THE THIEF) channels early Woody Allen and the French New Wave in this tale of young intellectuals who overcomplicate love while seeking solace in the more dependable pleasures of literature and popular music. Thirtyish Ramiro (Vila) works in his uncle’s secondhand bookstore in Madrid. Devastated when his long-term girlfriend leaves him, Ramiro attempts to pick up the pieces and revive his long-dormant ambitions as a poet. In Spanish with English subtitles. 35mm. (MR)
