Two of the greatest talents in modern Spanish cinema – Ricardo Darín (Wild Tales) and Javier Cámara (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 bona fide audience favourite internationally, TRUMAN is a funny, heartfelt portrait of friendship, and life’s unexpected ups and downs.
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 canine, 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, veterinarians and friends, and examine their lives – their loves, successes and failures – speculating on what the future holds.
