Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Camila Rodriguez Triana. Colombia. 2016. 81 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.
If Camila Rodríguez Triana’s title brings to mind the necessity of careful thoughtfulness as well as the emotionally reserved farewell to a letter, it is because feelings are indeed at the core of the film. The setting of this delicate and deeply moving film is a retirement home where we follow two elderly residents, Libardo and Alba. Within the simple setting, the film captures the quiet activity of daily life that is pervaded by memories. As time passes, punctuated by the romantic lyrics of songs on the radio, or the dialogues of the telenovelas that the residents are watching, a love story emerges between Libardo and Alba, and the man’s quest to gather the 15,000 pesos needed to allow them a double bed in their own room.
