It's a credit to writer-director Daniel Sanchez Arevalo that this comedy drama, his first feature film, maintains a light, breezy tone even as it takes on ethical issues. Quim Gutierrez stars as a twentysomething working a dead-end job as a janitor while caring for his invalid father. His incarcerated older brother desperately wants to impregnate his girlfriend, and when he discovers he's impotent he enlists his sibling, cautioning him not to get emotionally involved. Of course complications ensue, increased by the younger brother's budding romance with a previously unrequited love. Shot primarily in close-up, which enhances the story's warm intimacy, this is a solid debut. With Antonio de la Torre and Marta Etura. In Spanish with subtitles. 105 min.
