Luna Palace Cinemas says
Two of the greatest talents in modern Spanish cinema – Ricardo Darin (Wild Tales) and Javier Camara (Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed) – take centre stage in the multi award-winning new film from Cesc Gay, the director of 2014’s A Gun In Each Hand. A smash hit success in its home nations, TRUMAN is a funny, heartfelt portrait of friendship, and life’s unexpected ups and downs.

Join us on opening night at Cinema Paradiso when tickets include a complimentary glass of Freixenet Sparkling Cava on arrival and Admit 1 to special advance screenings of the forthcoming delight ROSALIE BLUM, the most popular film in the history of the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival. 6.30pm arrival drinks for 7pm screening.

When theatre actor Julián (Darín) receives an unexpected visit from his childhood friend Tomás (Cámara), the encounter is bittersweet. This reunion is their first meeting in many years, triggered by Julian’s failing health. Tomas is baffled by his friend’s decision to forgo treatment and instead focus on putting his affairs in order: distributing possessions, reconciling past disputes, and, most importantly, finding a home for his beloved Boxer, Truman. It’s this task that is causing Julián the greatest concern.

Over four days, the two men walk the streets of Madrid, visiting bookshops, restaurants, doctors, and veterinarians, and examine their lives – their loves, successes and failures – speculating on what the future holds.

In this jewel of a film, Cámara and Darin deliver a masterclass in screen acting, convincingly depicting the ease and rapport that only a life-long connection allows. With characteristic understatement and sensitivity, Gay finds great dignity and humour in ordinary lives, delivering a witty, moving and hugely entertaining reflection on male relationships, and a reminder that the best friendships are, indeed, forever.
