La buena vida 1996
1h 47min | Comedy, Drama | 13 December 1996 (Spain)
This humorous movie charts the life of a 14 year old (Tristan) as he deals with some major issues in his life. At the beginning of the movie he has already decided to dedicate his life to writing and losing his virginity (while his parents are away on holiday). Things don’t quite go to plan when at the crucial moment the phone rings to tell him his parents have been killed in a car crash. From then he is on his own and in control of his destiny, or at least he things so.
In 1997 i saw the movie at Mar del plata film festival (Argentina)
I think it is one of the most movies I´ve ever seen in my life. Real characters, great story, you can read the movie in multiple sense, to laugh, to cry, to think about. Tristan is a young man with a great intelligent and very mature, who need to start living the life like an adult. You will see great actors with strong characters. I know that this movie is very difficult to find. I saw like 40 times. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, go ahead. I did´t see this movie the last 5 months because now i m living in USA an my copy is in argentina. I hope that Soldados de salamina have success and can make the dvd of LA BUENA VIDA
