| Coming from the best traditional and classical European theatre
For some reason which just gets into the head of some youngsters, Pablo decides he wants to find out who his father was. And does so. Fortunately for the good of Spanish film-making in general, and for the good of Miguel Hermoso in particular: SANTIAGO RAMOS is a genius. Playing the part of Rafael, vanished father of Pablo (Eloy Azorín) whose mother Sonia (Assumpta Serna) mysteriously dissuades her son from trying to find him, Ramos plays the part of a mid-forties adventure-liver sliding through life as a radio programme presenter in a lost corner of the Canary Islands. Though born in Salamanca but having come up through the theatre world especially in Madrid, Ramos puts on an Andalusian accent with such flair and authenticity as to leave the understanding spectator at his feet. Splendid, superb, brilliant: magnificent, exemplary, this is acting and interpretation of the highest order. Your big names of Hollywood are no match for this kind of playing. However, in any dubbed version all the beauty of the interpretation would be lost, and of course with subtitles you really must pay attention, but it is worth it. Serna and Azorín speak with a more or less neutral Spanish accent, more or less typical of educated Madrid, and are much easier to understand. Santiago Ramos' assumed Andalusian accent and some of the local Canary voices are rather more difficult to understand. If you get this one on your TV, give it a try, but I refer of course to people interested in serious cinema, not light-hearted entertainment.
