"The role of men in our society has changed over the last decades and I have the feeling that we, the men, have been the last ones to notice it. I found it appealing writing ruthlessly about us and that is the point of my film—to show and tell about this new place where we find ourselves: lost, confused and searching for a new identity. And this is always a wonderful situation for comedy."—director Cesc Gay

Cesc Gay’s latest film features a who’s who of Spanish-language actors—Ricardo Darín, Javier Cámara, Eduardo Noriega, Candela Peña, Jordi Mollà, Leonor Watling to name but six—in a formidably acted, quietly acerbic comedy about the middle-aged male ego brought low. Gay doesn’t give his male characters names—they are all different shades of the proverbial Everyman—in the five related episodes that constitute his astute analysis of Spanish men today. Watch for the amazing Candela Peña—she takes down her amorous (and married) office colleague (Noreiga) with confidence and panache to burn.

"A witty, perceptive dissection of midlife masculine insecurities that’s all about dialogue and what some fine thesps can do with it… the film feels entirely true in its depiction of middle-aged guys finally learning how to talk about themselves, and the dialogue is by turns acidly observant, hilarious and quotable, as when [one character] notes, ’People only break up because they want to fall in love again.’"—Variety
