Synopsis:
When Ocho (Juan Barberini), an Argentine poet on holiday in Barcelona, spots Javi (Ramon Pujol) from the balcony of his apartment, it sparks fantasies of a holiday romance. After fruitlessly searching dating apps for him. the couple have a second missed connection, spotting each other across a Spanish beach. When Javi sees Ocho from his balcony a second time, he knows he can't let him slip through his fingers again. A tentative "kiss" from the balcony leads to a lust-filled, passionate hook up. What seems like a one-time encounter between two strangers becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship, in which time and space refuse to play by the rules.
In one of the best feature debuts, Lucio Castro's 'End of the Century' bends perception of time whilst exposing raw human connection, breaking the traditional rules of the love story.

Watchable love story that has some twists init, covering a period of time, but for me missed the emotional pull to get you completely enthralled!

Enjoyable but Very Confusing - End of the Century review by WH

Spoiler Alert
21/06/2020

The story zooms back and forth between today and the turn of the century- so that in the end you don't know what time zone you are in.

The day to day life in Barcelona is portrayed very well- and it gives you an idea of what it would be like to live there as a gay man.

A pleasant-but confusing- 82 minutes. Maybe you need to watch it twice?
