Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
When Generalissimo Francisco Franco relinquished power and then died in 1975, Spain had lived with him as its leader for so long that everyone in the country (even his opponents) felt his absence keenly. An era had ended and a new one begun. At the same time, some serious partying could begin, and Spain could finally rejoin Europe as a modern country. This film marks two important debuts: for Carmen Maura as a screen actress, and for the director, Fernando Colomo. In this film, a trio of people involved in an amicable love triangle explore their new sense of freedom after Franco's departure by attending political rallies, taking drugs, and discussing philosophy, and partying with their equally disoriented friends.
