Movie Summary

Director:
David Trueba
Released:
2013
Rating:
Not Available
Madrid, 1987 ...is a two-character story with a verbose discourse on writing, journalism, careerism, aging and politics. Shot mostly within a very constricted space, the story follows an older, celebrated journalist Miguel (José Sacristán) who meets the beautiful and coy journalism-student Angela (María Valverde) to give an interview - but becomes intent upon seducing her. They end up spending time in the most unusual manner ...discussing literature, prose and career trajectories ...gradually divulging little insights into their own selves as we start to understand the old journalist's cynicism and the young protégé's intentions.

    The Hollywood Reporter John DeFore

    An engrossing two-hander combining the smart-talk microcosm of "My Dinner With Andre" and the sexual dynamics of a Philip Roth novel, David Trueba's Madrid, 1987 is more universal ...

    Village Voice

    Miguel uses her beauty and placid demeanor as a screen against which to project his memories of past adventures and the ghost of his libido.

    The New York Times

    Sweet, sometimes dull and certainly overlong.
