This beautifully realized film plays like a road movie without the road....or the car... When three buddies lose their jobs at the local shipyard they suddenly find themselves with too much time on their hands and too little money. Even though they meet at the local pub every night to bullshit and cry on each others’ shoulders they go home to three different realities: brusque Santa daydreams about the way things should be; grey-haired Lino feels the weight of his advancing years as he tries to compete with men half his age; and proud José feels emasculated every time his wife brings home her own paycheque. It takes a friend’s sudden death to jar them out of their self-pitying rut....but is it enough to make them change? Aranoa takes full advantage of his seaside locations with some clever maritime imagery, whether it’s a ferry going nowhere or a half-finished tanker rusting away in dry dock. His characters are fully fleshed and human to a fault thanks in large part to a talented cast and an intelligent script that is alternately very funny and deeply affecting. Two thumbs up!
