  • Camara and Darin contribute outstanding work here, a beautifully meshed pair of performances that reveals nearly everything you need to know about the characters and their inner lives through exchanged looks, shrugs and the odd arched eyebrow. Full Review

  • Cesc Gay's wise, wistful and well-observed film about two friends enjoying a final reunion in the shadow of impending death, is by turns amusing and affecting - and quite often both at once. Full Review

  • A clean-lined, sensitively-written and beautifully played two-hander that tackles complex issues in a refreshingly straightforward, downbeat way. Full Review

  • Sweet, melancholic and, yes, gently funny. Full Review

  • You might enter the cinema fully expecting a total downer, but you will be sure to leave surprised by the spring it has put in your step. Full Review

  • A genuine, likeable, loose-limbed buddy dramedy about impending death, Truman is Catalan director Cesc Gay's first title with true export potential. Full Review
